Hi all,

my Asus M2A-VM (690G/SB600) is working and boots to memtest and FILO.

Memtest works fine over serial (well, I only ran memtest until it
reached 15%).
FILO can load the kernel, but I didn't have time to enable serial output
for my kernel.

Thanks to Zheng Bao for adding support for my 690G graphics.

I'll post a patch soon. Right now, there are a few more bugs to fix. The
ncHT fixup is already known, a clean patch will come tomorrow.

On a first boot, I get an endless loop of

drive detection fail,trying...

until I press the reset button. After that, it boots fine. That message
is in the SB600 code. I will enable some debugging that was disabled in
revision 3785.

Another curiosity is that my power button has become ineffective. It
simply initiates a reboot instead of switching off the machine after 4
seconds. That happens only with the FILO payload.
