[Qemu-devel] Key repeat is no longer working on TTY and grub menu

I noticed that the key inputs are no longer repeating when using default
setting on QEMU. For example, if I press "a" and keep it pressed it will
print only one "a" instead of repeating them. Another example is when
deleting text: instead of holding backspace pressed and the text is
deleted, it's needed to press backspace once for each character.

As this makes many tasks much slower, requiring many key presses for
tasks that were done in a single press, I did a bisect to see when this
change happened. The result is:

    kbd-state: use state tracker for gtk

    Use the new keyboard state tracked for gtk.  Allows to drop the
    gtk-specific modifier state tracking code.

I'm using the GTK interface and all guests without a Graphical User
Interface (GUI) are affected by this. This happens on grub menu and on
TTY of multiple Linux guests.

Workarounds found for the key repeat issue:

-Installing a GUI to server systems;
-Adding a usb-kbd device, but then the key '/' is lost.
