Source Changes
Added sound banking to the mirage.c driver. [Angelo Salese]

Removed parent clone relationship from "Street Fighter Zero/Alpha 2"
and "Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha". [David Haywood]

Removed parent clone relationship between missb2 and bublbobl. We
don't usually make the 'korean hacks' as clones as they have very
little to do with the original releases except for the stolen cpu
code. GFX / Sound / Gameplay are completely redesigned.
[David Haywood]

Changed VBLANK to irq0_line_assert and added a CLEAR_LINE in the
peplus driver. This greatly increases speed on all video slots.
[Jim Stolis]

Cleaned up the sample rom loading in mirage.c. [Angelo Salese]

MCS-51 improvements: [couriersud, Jim Stolis]

* According to Philips, 80C31 is a 80C52 family member with 128K
internal ram and no rom
* Implemented cmos features: powerdown & idle
* Added comments about special function registers on Philips 80C52
* cleaned up reset routines
* Fixed INT0 & INT1 interrupt line handling

* Started DS5002FP integration

Updated nes pcm dma to read data through the cpu address map.
[Wilbert Pol]

- Inverted the graphics banks to be straight with the hardware accesses.
- Updated the memory map description and technical notes.
- Added game notes and documented the test/settings/bookkeeping modes.

Fixed Dip Switches for 'arabian' and clones. [stephh]

Fixed Dip Switches for 'spaceint' and clones. [stephh]

Fixed MSM5205 ADPCM and sound comms in Ashita no Joe/Success Joe.
[Philip Bennett]

Various improvements to the jalmah.c driver: [Angelo Salese]
* Fixed tilemaps paging / tilemap positioning;
* Fixed a protection issue in Mahjong Daireikai,not giving correct
colors for the girls in-game;
* Fixed a rom-loading issue in Mahjong Daireikai;
* Fixed 'ZA' sound banking behaviour,this fixes at least the sound
in kakumei2;
* Removed VIDEO_EOF and added a TIMER_DEVICE_CALLBACK function for
MCU simulations;
* Added WIP code for the priority system;
* Added a NO_DUMP for the MCU for all the sets;

Rewrite of the Motorola DSP56k CPU core. [Andrew Gardner]
* Partially implemented inc24, asl4, bcc, brkcc, and doForever ops.
* Added code for parallel address register update.
* Partially implemented tfr op.
* Polygonet now allows test mode to be run for a few seconds. Most
IO is now known, though coin2 is still a mystery.
* Partially implemented move, asr4, and mpy ops.

YM2608/2612: applied latest fixes/discoveries. [Eke-Eke, Nemesis]

Added palette fading effect on macrossp.c driver. [Angelo Salese]

Fixed skewing and display area in MC6845. [Curt Coder]

Fixed Dip Switches and inputs for 'dreamwld'. [stephh]

NEC CPU core improvements: [couriersud]
* removed another speed hack in the NEC core
* renamed "FETCH" to "FETCH()" (macros used as functions should
look like functions)
* Preparation for opcode prefetch timing
* improved prefetch timing calculation
* prefetch timing now also used by V20 and V33
* moved some static variables into cpu context
* nec_reset now explicitly clears context variables
* all cpus now share nec_execute

More Discrete module optimizations. Added optimized custom mixer to
Donkey Kong. [Derrick Renaud]

lohtb2: Improved mcu emulation [couriersud]
* The whole startup cycle now works. No more timeouts and erratic
* lohtb2 will however not display the "Warning" screen due to a
priority issue. With color/attribute of 0x80 in videoram at 0xd0000 and 0xd8000, videoram at 0xd80000 will be displayed. Some tilemap guru has to look into this.

Fix GCC 4.3 "array bounds exceeded" error in disc_flt.c. [R. Belmont]

plygonet improvements: [R. Belmont]
- Turned off network IRQ. Game now boots without "network error"
- Hooked up palette RAM

- Fixed text layer emulation and visible area. FBI logo and color
test now display properly.

Fixed sound,hooked-up generic inputs and added some notes in Alien
Command (not yet working). [Angelo Salese]

from Mame 0.34b6 / s1 from older dump
* breakrev: Renamed c's to correct chip label, added correct c5/c6
* Marked mslug3h MVS AND AES VERSION

Modified src2html to use a template source file instead of hard-coding
to the MAME site. Changed from explicit styles to classes.
[Aaron Giles]

Changed magictg to use (hopefully correct) roms. [David Haywood]

Naomi / DC improvements [Samuele Zannoli]
* cvs2gd stops looping forever. However with no 3d emulation nothing
is shown on the screen.

[Aaron Giles]

Synchronized 6502 disassembly with CPU core. [Pugsy]

Added missing const/statics, added/removed entries in header files,
and fixed a few potential multisession issues by explicitly adding
initializers. asic65.c has significant changes to accomodate using a
