Subject: [PATCH 0/5] kdb: Cleanup code to read user input and handle escape sequences

I spend a little time earlier this month looking at kdb_read() and ended
up doing a little light refactoring a bit to make easier to read.

Most of the patches are simple tidy ups although patches 4 and 5
introduce new behaviours. Patch 4 is probably not controversial
but perhaps patch 5 is ;-).

Tested as shown here:

Daniel Thompson (5):
  kdb: Tidy up code to handle escape sequences
  kdb: Simplify code to fetch characters from console
  kdb: Remove special case logic from kdb_read()
  kdb: Improve handling of characters from different input sources
  kdb: Tweak escape handling for vi users
