    Add a capability for mainboard-specific posting.
    Some mainboards have really nice capabilities for posting, beyond
    simple POST cards. Further, some can not use a POST card. This
    change defines a weak symbol (mainboard_post) that can be overridden
    by a real mainboard_post function.
    If, for example, you'd like to do something fancy before the payload starts,
    you can add this to mainboard.c:
    void mainboard_post(u8 value)
    		case POST_TIME_TO_PARTY: some_fancy_lights();
    Maybe the post function should be an entry in the device. We're beginning to over-use
    weak symbols.
    TEST=Build and boot a google chromebook. Observe that it still works. Use it to drive
    some pretty lights.
