CN700 ;) I'll work around him. Lets get his stuff in, since I'm still
not quite ready. I do need a few extra bits that I hope he can test,
namely USB init which doesn't work for me without setting IO addresses
and irqs in linuxbios. Linux *should* be able to just clobber those
settings later if it doesn't like them.

vt8237r should be helpful for a number of other targets, everything from
several other C3/C7 chipsets use it, along with some k7 and a lot of k8
stuff, and I think some p4 chips too.
