Port for VG4 from SBS

here is a working port for the VG4 PPC-board from SBS.

- The diffs are against an almost 1 week old linuxppc_2_4_devel from
BK, but there should be no big problemns there
- This port is using a new scheme for the openpic_init(), proposed
  by me some posts ago, but it was implemented in it's own
  copy of the open_pic code, open_pic2.c, and so it should be
  completely nonintrusive on the existing ports. Anyone doing
  a new port should IMH take a look at open_pic2 as it will
  make your work easier.
  It would of course be nice to get rid of the code duplication there
  is openpic <-> openpic2, preferrably by all ports beeing transferred
  to the new scheme.
- couldn't get the sym53c8xx driver in the BK kernel to work, so I
  downloaded a newer version, and this works fine. It is rather large
  so it is not included here, but if you need it, get it from it's homepage
  or send me a mail.
