Extending the range of supported FPGA platforms

As we are constantly extending the range of platforms supported by Genode FX, we have now documented the process of adapting our FPGA graphics solution to new platforms by the example of the Virtex-4-based ML405 board.

Our detailed porting guide (https://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=132123&group_id=237260) will enable third parties to deploy our technology on custom FPGA boards in a straight-forward way. The guide takes the popular ML405 evaluation platform as example but the described methodology should be easily applicable to other boards as well. In addition to the ML405, we have added new example projects for the Spartan-3E and Spartan-3AN platforms to our public subversion repository. With the current release 2008-10 (https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=237260), we support the Spartan-3A/3AN/3E, the Virtex-4-based ML405, and the Virtex-5-based ML507 platforms.
