Jeff Cody now admins the qemu-project.org server, including the git

Jeff, please create a mirror git repo for
https://github.com/ozbenh/QemuMacDrivers at
git://git.qemu-project.org/QemuMacDrivers.git with nightly mirroring.

Once Jeff has set up the mirror repo, please send a new revision of this
patch that makes roms/QemuMacDrivers a git-submodule(1) pointing to

Please double-check that the binary ROM included in the patch
corresponds to the QemuMacDrivers commit referenced by the
git-submodule(1) before sending the patch.
