ssh/terminal: adjust ReadConsole rules on windows

CL 212377 changed end of input character on windows - from \n to \r.
But CL 212377 did not adjust ReadConsole accordingly. For example,
after CL 212377 \n was still used to end of password processing,
and \r was ignored.

This CL swaps these rules - \r is now used to end password processing,
and \n are ignored. The change only affects windows, all non windows
code should work as before.

This CL also adjusts TestReadPasswordLineEnd to fit new rules.

Fixes golang/go#36609
