 Ok, name-scheme accepted. There will be grf_cl for Picasso, Piccolo and
Spectrum in Z2 Bus (l== low) and grf_ch for Piccolo/Spectrum in Z3 Bus (h ==
high). grf_cl will use /dev/grf3 and grf_ch will use /dev/grf4 - that ok?

 Remember this is for 1.0, not for -current. Currently I am stuck to 1.0.
Any volunteer can adapt the source to -current and probably use the
old scheme.

 It is one single driver except that I must split up into Z2 and Z3 for
several reasons. The current port does not work for Piccolo/Spectrum
in Z2-machines (quite funny that noone had problems though).
