Full ack. Northbridge-specific code belongs in src/northbridge/*.

However, this is not northbridge specific code. It's more like "common
code which somewhat similar mainboards share". Theoretically this could
include even more (non-440BX) boards which are also similar enough, but
for now I concentrated on 440BX boards.

If we later add non-440bx boards (e.g. 430TX or i810 or something) to
the same framework, we might rename it to xyz-base (but I have no idea
what a good name for xyz would be ;-)

Also, I'm a bit undecided if it should be 
(i.e. put the "base" code parts in an extra directory or not). Opinions?
