This adds a native MacOS driver in ROM (which can be picked up
by MacOS once OpenBIOS has been updated if Mark accepts
the patches I sent him) which allows MacOS classic
(tested 9.2.1) and MacOS X (tested 10.1.4 and 10.4)
to properly use QEMU std VGA (10.1.x doesn't work at all
without it, the others get the ability to change resolution
and color depth).

Building the ROM is tricky and requires CodeWarrior for MacOS
so I include a pre-built binary.
So, I believe qemu convention is to include the ROM source via a
submodule - even though it won't typically be built from there and the
prebuilt blob will be used instead.

Not sure who the right person to talk to about that would be.

I think Stefan handles the logistics there now. CC'ed him.

The reason for the submodule is so that on tar releases, the source gets included automatically. That way we can ensure that we always include all GPL sources that we deliver binaries for.
