Add initial support for i855gme. This is a work in progress and I
don't expect it to work on all boards, or even any besides mine. This
is based heavily on i855pm.

This patch includes config files for the asus/a8n5x port. It is the same as
asus/a8n_e with a different pnp layout, so I used #include's whenever possible.
System boots and is usable with usb keyboard.
- serial port
- vga (old pci card)
- memtest86+ succeeds, but only with Rudolf's patch for unbuffered dimms
in K8. Otherwise you get spurious memory corruption.
- ide disk
- ps/2 keyboard
- onboard ethernet
- vga pci-e card (??)
- any other pci card I tried
- game port
- onboard audio (not supported by alsa anyway)
- ps/2 mouse

(as seen on /.)
Is there a magic number for LZMA? Should there be?
I accidentally used an uncompressed payload with v2 when it expected a
compressed payload, and it gave me the message:
Decoder scratchpad too small!!
Decoding error = 1
I think it would be nicer to have an error like:
Payload not compressed with lzma!
I have no idea if this helps. But there's been discussion of "DRAM
settings in DTS" and "where does CARBASE go" and so on, so I think we
need to try to document some rules. Here is a first cut.
On two boards, one MCP55 based and another CK804, if I flash the
proprietary BIOS with: flasrom -wv bios.bin
Verification fails and if I try to boot, it doesn't. Have to flash the
BIOS in another board based on K8T890 that I have. In that one all
works fine, with both BIOS chips I have - one winbond and a PMC.
Haven't tried flashing coreboot due to lack of support.
Since the chipsets are support, this isn't supposed to happen, right?
