[LinuxBIOS] epia, rom_cc and locking code

Ok first off the issue with ROM_CC and #if - #else - #endif not
compiling properly.

After some testing I have at least found the problem and it only ever
happens if you put  a C++ style
comment on the same line as the #if or #else

so in the following example

static void test_ifdef(void)

#if TEST_IFDEF // blows up
#else  /* ok */

Of course no comment works fine as well.  Also putting a blank line
after the comment produces the correct code.
I can't say for the rest of the linuxbios code, but the via/epia code
seems to have a good mixture of both types of comments.

Perhaps as the code is not strictly C++ you should stick to using
standard C style comments.

Ok now to my problems with the EPIA board. I think in general it is
working ok, but I still have some problems.
