These patches reduce the boot time for me on my epia-cn.  (From
payload launch in 2.273s down to 0.610s.)  Where possible, I tried to
make the changes apply to other boards.  However, I have not tested
any other boards.

Kevin O'Connor (4):
  Make initializing PS2 keyboard optional.
  Enable TSC calibration with timer2 by default.
  Reduce TSC calibrations from 20ms to 2ms.
  Don't preload the rom code during the VIA CAR setup.
