This is a change about loading keyboard across plugins. A VTable entry is added to the end of the plugin structure, so it can be call the load_kbd function across a dynamic plugin.

I test this on a Sansa, but it is workable to all.

* Notice: This won't store or replace your keyboard setting based on what you do in plugin when alone call the load_kbd from plugin.

This task depends upon

Apologies, I had forgot one detail about the plugin api version. Only used: PLUGIN_API_VERSION, because I left it dangling at the end waiting for anyone to change an existing API to sort near a kbd routine. Please consider to integrate this one.

I don't understand this patch. It just adds the vkeyboard function to the API, but it is not used?

Yes, it is currently unused. I am porting a GPL App from the sourceforge that can take usage of the function. This looked like a smaller change that might have some use to some quickly, so I put it independent. My development porting is slow for a busy spring season in my current job. The task at hand is a stardict port fwiw. I hope someone can take the plugin vtable update. Happy hanami season to you and yours!
