Add GPIO Keys support for Devkit8000

Using Android on Devkit8000, we have problem of getting back to previous screen. The touchscreen can only be used to decide whether you select item or not, so a BACK button would be needed absolutely for Android. Devkit8000 board has four buttons on the corner, we can set one of it as Back functionality.

First step, add a option to kernel config file to enable GPIO keyboard device:

Second step, set USER_KEY as ESC Keycode for back functionality:
diff --git a/arch/arm/mach-omap2/board-omap3devkit8000.c b/arch/arm/mach-omap2/board-omap3devkit8000.c
