Fixed TI PSG (sn76489 and friends) noise and square-wave period to be
maximum length when period register is set to 0. Fixed white-noise
phase/XOR issue: got rid of noise XOR/XNOR select, as all chips seem
to use XOR. [Lord Nightmare, Michael Zapf, PlgDavid]

Preliminary DIP coverage (lives/coinage/test mode) and Player 2
control fix for unclepoo. [Tafoid]

useless code, and fixed a comment. [Lord Nightmare]

ui.c,ui.h,windows/input.c: [Miodrag Milanovic]
