[LinuxBIOS] 3ware 9550sx boot device and LinuxBIOS

I have an s2892 and an s2895 and they're very similar.  I've used Linux as a
payload on the s2892, but I haven't done it on the s2895 yet (just FILO.) If
you use the approach in the tutorial on the s2892 (the OLPC way) that's on
the wiki you should be able to fit everything you need in the ROM.  The only
difference is that you will need to enable support for your SCSI controller
in the stripped-down Linux kernel, and use LinuxBIOS for the s2895 instead
of the s2892.

Good Luck,
