[LinuxBIOS] CMOS checksums on intel/xe7501devkit

Yes - on the XE7501DEVKIT, the factory BIOS appears to use all of the
low 128 bytes of CMOS. So in order to have peaceful coexistence of LB
and the factory BIOS, the default XE7501DEVKIT build doesn't use CMOS at
all (i.e. single-image build).

is there a reason that the LB checksum used on the intel/xe7501devkit is
completely different (and covers a really small space only)

default LB_CKS_RANGE_START=128
default LB_CKS_RANGE_END=130
default LB_CKS_LOC=131

compared to all the other supported boards:

default LB_CKS_RANGE_END=122
default LB_CKS_LOC=123
