Raspberry Pi USB booting code

This is the USB MSD boot code which should work on the Raspberry Pi model A, Compute Module, Compute module 3 and Raspberry Pi Zero.

This version of rpiboot has been modified to work from directories which contain the booting firmware. There is a default directory msd/ which contains bootcode.bin and start.elf to turn the Raspberry Pi device into a USB Mass Storage Device (MSD).
