FS#11483 - Virtual Keyboard: synchronize remote screen

This synchronizes the remote display to the main on the virtual keyboard. Many remotes don’t have enough buttons to use the virtual keyboard independently. By synchronizing the main and remote and sending keyboard input to both screens the remote can be useful even without a full set of editing buttons. The displays show a panning window of the picker area. This saves about 1000 bytes on targets with remotes by not duplicating the keyboard picker buffer.

I’m not sure what to do with paging, input would be appreciated. For now I took it out and just made one big picker area, which allows the preservation of the layout in the custom keyboard layout file.

No interest.

One other note: Using a panning window for the picker prevents the virtual keyboard code from chopping a custom layout into something like the following when the font is too big:
abcefghijklmnopqrstuvwx
yz
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWX
YZ
