[LinuxBIOS] [PATCH] v2: Add a bunch of Intel 440BX boards

here's a number of patches which add (or fix) quite a bunch of Intel
440BX / 82371EB based boards.

As per recent discussion I have reluctantly abandoned the idea to have a
common code base for all of them (and I'm not really happy with this).
Rest assured that they _will_ be merged into a common code base when
ported to v3, though.

Except for very, very few lines per board, they're all identical.
The Options.lb files are _fully_ identical for all of them, not a single
byte differs. I might post a followup patch to fix that at least.

I'll follow-up on this mail with the patches, one per board.

Thanks to various people on IRC for helping out with information and
testing of some of these boards:

 - todthgie: Compaq Deskpro EN SFF P600.

 - idwer_: ASUS P2B.

 - zxy_64-2: AZZA PT-6IBD.

(and maybe other which I might have forgotten; sorry)

The rest of the boards are mine, not _all_ of them are tested on
hardware yet (but most are). Every board in the patch series is build-tested.

Note that this doesn't mean all of them are _fully_ supported yet.
Some might need smaller adaptions, all of them are crippled a bit
by the currently incomplete 440BX and 82371EB support (I have patches
for both, which I'll post soon).

I'm relatively sure that all of them should boot up to a Linux login
prompt already, though. A more detailed status report will follow in
the next few days in the resp. wiki Status/Tutorial pages.
