    M4A785T-M: Add support for external GFX.
    This commit enables the external graphics card.
    In order to work, the internal graphic card has to be
      disabled, that is done in src/device/device.c through:
      which calls the RS780 disable operation introduced in the following
      commit: "rs780: add .disable pcie_ops"
    This commit was tested with and without the following card:
      02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] (rev a2)
    Thanks Aladyshev for the pointer(in the #coreboot IRC channel on Freenode servers):
      Dec 20 19:43:32 <Aladyshev>	If you list your internal card in devicetree.cb,
      coreboot will distinguish external and internal VGA and choose external one
