Proper Keycode Scanning

OS/64 has been updated to properly utilize keycode scanning for the emulated OS.  Prior to now, we were just injecting the PETSCII code into the keyboard buffer, which worked, but it disregarded the control that the CIA1 chip has over the keyboard.  For completeness-sake and better compatibility to code, this needed to be changed to proper keycode scanning.  Ive modified the ROM to move some keys to their proper PC keyboard location (SHIFT-2 = @).

Im going to be testing on a number of machines, but if your test machine has issues with the keys, let me know.  Some keyboards are just strange.  Laptops come to mind.
