Video mode probing support for the new x86 setup code

Video mode probing for the new x86 setup code.  This code breaks down
different drivers into modules.  This code deliberately drops support
for a lot of the vendor-specific mode probing present in the assembly
version, since a lot of those probes have been found to be stale in
current versions of those chips -- frequently, support for those modes
have been dropped from recent video BIOSes due to space constraints,
but the video BIOS signatures are still the same.

However, additional drivers should be extremely straightforward to plug
in, if desirable.
