boot [Angelo Salese]

Neo-Geo updates [Johnboy]:
* burningfh - Renamed p1 to hp1
* gowcaizr - Added correct C8 ROM
* 8man - Tagged MVS and AES version
* jockeygpa - Added alternate jockeygp set
* mslug5h - Corrected chip labels

Hooked up cocktail mode and proper controls for both players in Maze
Invaders, adding button labels to describe the action of each.
[sxevious, Tafoid]

Fixed LDM opcode register writeback in ARM CPU core [Tim Schuerewegen]

General stability issues with 64-bit builds fixed for cybertnk.c
[David Haywood]

Add directxor parameter to direct memory accessors. Update all callers
that manually XORed addresses to pass the XOR instead. This improves
behavior when direct accessors hit non-RAM regions, or when watchpoints
are used, because we now know the original, un-xored address and can
fall back to standard read/write handlers properly. Also fixes
glitched disassembly when read watchpoints are enabled. [Aaron Giles]

Source Changes
--------------
Fixed problems with i2cmem. Cubo CD32 games now save and load settings
properly. [Mariusz Wojcieszek]

Cleaned up many duplicate inputs and fixed others in a number of
drivers. [Tafoid]

SDL: Support -uifont for using arbitrary TrueType fonts on Linux/BSD
builds. This takes full pathname/filename to the font, and the name
can have styles appended as in Windows: [b] for bold, [i] for italic,
[s] for strikethrough, and [u] for underlined. Fonts are rendered at
a size of 120 points and scaled down by the core, which looks superb
on high-res displays. (Liberation Sans that comes with most recent
distros looks really good). [R. Belmont]

Warning: Linux/BSD builds now require SDL_ttf 2.x. On Fedora the
required package names are "SDL_ttf" and "SDL_ttf-devel".

tms7000: Corrected two opcodes: typo in inv_b and JPZ was wrong in
official TI document. [Gilles Fetis]

SDL: -uifont now can also look up system font families like Windows
[R. Belmont]

Take some driver_device classes that cover multiple drivers and
split them so that each driver gets their own driver_device class.
In most cases, these drivers got entangled because of audio/mcu code
that was shared between multiple drivers: [Atari Ace]

* espial/marineb/zodiak
- common code duplicated
* m52/m57/m58/m62/travrusa
- common code in audio/irem.c
* junofrst/pooyan/rallyx/rocnrope/timeplt/tutankm
- common code in audio/timeplt.c
* hyperspt/sbasketb/trackfld/yiear
- common code in audio/trackfld and audio/hyprolyb.c
* 40love/bking/buggychl/msisaac
- common code in machine/buggychl.c

SDL: OS X support for -uifont [Tim Lindner]

SDL: Build fixes for Ubuntu, -uifont non-ASCII rendering fix
[R. Belmont, Barry Rodewald]

SDL: Mac compile warning fix [Wilbert Pol]

Added bare bones irq support to V810 CPU [Miodrag Milanovic]

Updated Naomi's M2/M3 decryption. On the fly decryption of Virtua
Striker III is now possible. [Andreas Naive]

Fixed interrupt handing in V810 core,and flag position in PCW
[Miodrag Milanovic]

SDL: add ptty (*IX/OS X) and sockets (all SDL builds) capability
[Tim Lindner, R. Belmont]

Added Button 3 to the original Yie Ar Kung-Fu boardsets. While not
shown in manual, there is function for these buttons and the emulation
should account for this possibility. Mapping is off by default.
[Tafoid]

CPS-1 updates [Team CPS-1]:
* Added The King of Dragons (World 910805) and set as new parent
* Minor cleanups and fixes
* Added Mega Man: The Power Battle (CPS1, USA 951006) and set as new

* mercs -> mercsr1, mercsua -> mercs
* Added Street Fighter II: The World Warrior (World 910228)

ffightj, ffightj1, ffightj2 and cawingj
* Minor cleanups and fixes

Replaced smgolfb with correct dump
[D. Beneke, M. David, Smitdogg, The Dumping Union]

MESS fixes: [Miodrag Milanovic]
* Fixed issue with image empty slot
* Default for writeconfig is now 0 for MESS since it is not needed
anymore
* Fixed handling of mounted devices on hard reset
* Unified some emuopts code, and removed ifdefs

Corrected several rom names in the Sega System32 driver. Most notably
the correct revision for Spider-man & Golden Axe II US sets.
[The Dumping Union]

Hooked up MSM5205 sample playback routines to Rougien, disabled by
default because sample start write handler is still a mystery
[Angelo Salese]

Updated Naomi/Naomi2 M2/M3 encryption. [Andreas Naive]

Fix F4 shortcut so it explicitly labels the address as a number by
preceding it with "0x". This allows F4 to work properly, for example,
on the 68000 stepping to address a6, which also happens to be a
register name. [Aaron Giles]

More updates to Naomi/Naomi2 M2/M3 decryption. [Andreas Naive]

Added proper sample playback in Rougien [Andrew Welburn, Angelo
Salese]

Split the screen device into a separate module. Converted global video
routines into a video_manager. Moved video manager initialization
earlier in startup. [Aaron Giles]

Allowed the use of either decimal or hexadecimal values for <dataarea>
size, <rom> size, and <rom> offset in software lists. [Curt Coder]

Fixed array bounds problems found by GCC 4.5.x [qmc2, R. Belmont]

Updated the Space Stranger overlay layout by adding the overlay for
the Upright version, which looks different to the Cocktail.

----------------------
- 04096: [DIP/Input] sjryuko: Most inputs do not work (Angelo Salese)
- 02561: [Interface] Ability to choose a different name for the UI
font (Aaron Giles)



Source Changes
--------------
Create new class osd_interface to house OSD callbacks. Added new
module osdepend.c with default empty implementations. Changed
mame_execute() and cli_execute() to accept a reference to an
osd_interface which is provided by the caller. [Aaron Giles]

Updated SDL and Windows OSD to create an osd_interface-derived class
and moved their OSD callbacks to be members. [Aaron Giles]

Make osdmini build again. [Aaron Giles]

Discrete Sound - Added DISCRETE_XTIME_xxx logic modules. These allow
you to do logic operations on nodes that use x_time anti-alias info.
Added the ability to decode x_time to the DISCRETE_BIT_DECODE module.
This means you can have an oscillator pass x_time onto a counter, get
the counter bits decoded, pass that through the new logic modules and
also have them convert the x_time to energy/anti-alaised voltage.
Updated Donkey Kong Jr. to use these new modules. [Derrick Renaud]

Convert rendfont to C++. [Aaron Giles]

[SDL Debugger] Removed an unnecessary assert and brought focus back to
the main debugger window on startup. [Andrew Gardner]

Added support for OSD-generated fonts. The OSD is queried first to see
if it owns a given font (based on the name), and if it does, it is
responsible for generating bitmaps on the fly as characters are
requested. [Aaron Giles]

Added new option -uifont to specify the UI font. It can be set to a
filename, in which case a BDF font will be loaded. It can also be set
to a font name (assuming the OSD support is present), in which case
the OSD font by that name is used. The default value is 'default'
which can be used by the OSD to substitute a default font or by the
OSD, which will default to ui.bdf as before. In all cases, it falls
back to the built-in font by default if none of the previous options
works. [Aaron Giles]

NOTE: On Windows, the OSD will default to Tahoma as the font name.
Also on Windows, font names can be specified with [b] to indicate
bold or [i] to indicate italic.

Use "default" font for artwork elements as well. Make UI backgrounds a
bit more opaque. Fix crash when passing NULL filename to OSD code.
