nvram-wakeup 0.05 and 0.90 released

nvram-wakeup is released in versions 0.05 and 0.90

while 0.05 is the last release of the "old" versions and can be considered stable (after nearly one year the only change is the addition of a couple of new boards)

the 0.90 release is a large rewrite. nvram-wakeup now autodetects the motherboard, is able to read configuration files and hasn't be recompiled for new boards any more.

enjoy
