  MFC: When enabling A20 put upper limit on amount of time we wait for the
  keyboard controller to get ready (65K x ISA access time, visually around
  1 second). If we have wait more than that amount it's likely that the
  hardware is a legacy-free one and simply doesn't have keyboard controller
  and doesn't require enabling A20 at all.
  This makes cdboot/pxeldr working for MacBook Pro with Boot Camp and
  other legacy-free i386 hardware like IBM Netvista S40.
