debian/kbd.init: run setterm against /dev/tty1 under systemd

The util-linux setterm program explicitly uses STDIN/STDOUT for some
ioctl based settings. Those ioctls fails if we run setterm under systemd
sanitized environment which has closed stdin/stdout for us. Explicitly
redirect to /dev/tty1 as none of these ioctls seems to be per-vc
Additionally TERM needs to be specified (either in the environment or
explicitly). Since systemd sanitizes the environment, we give it

Closes: #771161
