[coreboot] [PATCH] badram filtering

This patch implements badram filtering in GRUB.  It's the same idea as in
http://rick.vanrein.org/linux/badram/ but applied to GRUB.

The badram module sits between loaders (or other users like lsmmap) and
filters the mmap entries, but only when user previously set the "badram"
variable (whose syntax is the same as the one in badram patch for Linux).

NOTE this won't affect loadees that get the memory map from BIOS instead
of from GRUB.  This means it currently works for Multiboot and for the
new/experimental Linux loader.

  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
