Source Changes
Removed unneeded UI keys by removing the constants. Readded
UI_ON_SCREEN_DISPLAY to be changed again in the "Inputs" menu.

Added missing support of normal joystick for player 2 in 'gwarb'.

Fixed a number of regressions due to recent 68000 IRQ changes.
[Aaron Giles]

Added new functions for building device-relative tags. Changed machine
configuration builder to use these functions. Also changed the
laserdisc player devices to use them. Updated Z80 CTC/SIO code to
assume that the CPU provided for the clock is relative to the device
that the CTC/SIO belong to. Updated memory code to assume that regions
and devices referenced by the memory map are relative to the device
the associated CPU belongs to. [Aaron Giles]

Neo-Geo cleanups (still in progress): [Johnboy]
- Sorted OEM / Bootleg sets
- Renamed roms on non OEM / Bootleg sets to ONE naming sheme
- Renamed functions
- Added some comments
