Its here! SATA issue solved (thanks for hint VIA!). This patch adds support for
the VIA VT8237S south bridge. The VT8237R programming remains unchanged (tested
on mine desktop) except of reverting the small change introduced by Bari
(gpio/inta setup reg 0x5b). This should go for some board specific file. The
change would broke at least mine board. But seems to be needed for jakllsch.

Please someone try to fix it.

Ok now back to patch.

VT8237S peripherals:

SPI flash - works, flashing fine
SATA - now works, maybe need adjustments for your PCB
USB - OK works
IDE - OK works
Network - OK works even if the board has no own flash - new code has to be
called, default MAC will be 00:00:DE:AD:BE:EF.
Sound - untested may work

ACPI - works
APIC - works

Please try to ack the patch quickly, because a lot of people needs to dig into
those files :)
