[LinuxBIOS] [PATCH][RFC] PCBIOS legacy tables

there are several legacy tables that PCBIOS writes, eg. about the io-ports
of the various serial ports.

We probably need a place for them to be generated, as some clients might
rely on the presence of these tables.

Grub2 definitely needs the serial port's ioport written at 0x400 (which the
attached patch does) to support serial console, but I'm not sure if that's
a good place to collect such configuration or where to put it instead.
So please consider this patch an attempt to start a discussion... :-)
