       keyboard_clearstate  - reset the state of all keys when in raw keyboard


       #include <vgakeyboard.h>

       void keyboard_clearstate(void);


       When in raw keyboard mode, svgalib receives press  and  release  events
       from  the  kernel  and  keeps  track  which keys are currently pressed.
       Calling  keyboard_clearstate()  sets  this  information  to  all   keys
       released.  You  can  use  this  for  cleanup  at certain places in your
       program. In addition svgalib resets the states of all keys  when  a  VC
       switch  occurs  because it does not know the current state of keys when
       it regains control of the console.
