[coreboot] Dual SPI Flash adapter

Unfortunately I have had little feedback so far. But here's a small update.
I have finally received my SO8 memory modules and those babies are
small. Because of this, I have replaced the SO8M footprint with an SO8W
footprint, making it quite a bit wider, but should be much easier to
manually solder. I tried for an hour to fit a 1008 footprint for the
resistors but there would be hardly any room left for silkscreening.
Also all the smd compontens that I have to salvage seem to be 0603
components anyway. I'm sure people will manage to solder 2 resistors.
I've also saw a screenshot of an Asus motherboard that had the bios chip
right next to a Sata port, in the wrong/different orientation, so I've
added a 3rd design so all 3 possible insertations are possible. (Left,
center and right facing connector).
I've attached the gEDA .pcb file with the 3 orientation, with each
having their individually nets/defs so that the DRC/rat check works.
When sending out the final rev. I'll copy/paste the silk screens from
the left design so they all look identical.
If I get no negative feedback, I'll try to send the boards out for
manufacture next week, so in a month or two I should have about 40 PCB's
and would be happy to send a few out to coreboot dev's, if there's any
interest at all :)
