5th Sep 16:22 4ba3231457: Fiio M3K: Fix Yes/No Keymap

The yes/no keymap does not fall back to the Standard keymapping, so keys other than Back and Power do not cancel, though the prompt says "any other key".

Adding fallback to standard context as well as explicit Left, Right, Vol+ and Vol- as they're not present in the standard context.

Tested on physical m3k
