[OpenBIOS] Tidying up the modules subdirectory

Hi everyone,

In looking at the modules/ subdirectory, it seems to me that it is 
actually serving multiple purposes. Not only does it contain C 
implementations for Forth words defined within various extension 
packages, but also various random library routines.

I'd like to propose creating a new directory called common/ and moving 
any files that don't contain C implementations of package words into 
this new directory. With this in place, I think it will be possible to 
share more files between the various architectures; in particular I 
think it will be possible to use one set of code for each of the 
different *-loaders, rather than requiring separate implementations for 
each architecture (e.g. arch/*/elfload.c).
