x86: GEODE add the "mfgptfix" boot time option to fix MFGPT timers
The new "mfgptfix" boot command line option may be usd to fix MFGPT timers on AMD Geode platforms when the BIOS has incorrectly applied a workaround. TinyBIOS version 0.98 is known to be affected, 0.99 fixes the problem by letting the user disable the workaround.
