Note: The keystatus command with no options also returns true, indicating that the command is supported on the platform.

A cfg script uses the keystatus --shift command against a kernel generated using grub-2.06-for-windows. The command always returns true even if the shift key is not depressed.

This seems to be somewhat hardware dependent. The command works properly on some machines.

The failure occurs on a a Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 notebook running in EFI firmware mode and may also happen on other machines.
