Patch description:
     There are 2 patches, patch 1 would add a bmp decoder to enable
seabios show bmp file, patch 2 will make the splash time configurable.
     Main purpose of this patch is:
     1 Enable seabios showing a logo picture when start up without menu
     2 Added a bmp showing module to show 24bpp bmp file as an option,
for better visual effect than old jpeg decoder.
     3 Make the showing time configurable by qemu, when it equals 0,
directly boot up.
     4 added a function to adjust data format, both used by jpeg decoder
and  bmp module.

     Currently I passed the variable Splash_time from a romfile, named
"qemu_extra_params_fw.cfg", I think more variable could be simply
packed inside this file in the future, not only for the splash_time
