[LinuxBIOS] LinuxBIOS Solaris Dev

Ok, here's what I came up with for a Solaris 10 patch. I don't know that
it's the best way, but I tried to make somewhat clean. Feel free to
rewrite/suggest anything. Note that Solaris 10 removed the ability to
compile libc static, and I don't know if we think it's worth the effort,
so I just made checks to disable it for SunOS.

Awesome! I think that did it. I'm not at the office right now, so I
don't want to reboot my test system, but it doesn't look like anything
blew up. Thanks for the help! If everything is good, I'll clean it up
and make a patch. Should be fairly minimal.


whodini# ./flashrom -w /mnt/adamk/tyan/2882v309.rom
Calibrating delay loop... ok
No LinuxBIOS table found.
Enabling flash write on AMD8111...OK
Pm49FL004 found at physical address: 0xfff80000
Flash part is Pm49FL004 (512 KB)
Flash image seems to be a legacy BIOS. Disabling checks.

It looks /dev/mem only contains ram on solaris, not the complete address

There's a workaround, try using /dev/xsvc instead. It is part of X (or
XFree?) as it seems.
