    loader: lua: disable autoboot timer after password entry
    In the lua loader, if one sets a password in loader.conf, the
    autoboot_delay timer will start before the menu is displayed.  One can
    interrupt the autoboot and bring up the menu by entering a keyboard
    character before the timer expires.
    If this is done a prompt for the password is displayed.  Entering the
    password will bring up the menu, but the timer will again start and
    another keyboard character must be entered or autoboot will abort the
    menu and boot the system.
