added Zer0-X beta DMA-selector patch

Use HDLoader that is atleast patched for 48bit with HDLPatch 0.7c (some of the additional patches in the unofficial HDLPatch would currently become overwritten/broken, because this is just a beta).
DANGER: WHILE IN THE MDMA-MODE, DO NOT CHANGE ANY OPTIONS (IF YOU HAPPEN TO PRESS SELECT TO ENTER THE OPTIONS MENU, RESET!), INSTALL, REMOVE OR RENAME ANYTHING OR YOU COULD CORRUPT YOUR HDD!!! AND DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU CAN'T BE SURE OF WHAT YOUR HANDS ARE DOING WHEN LEFT UNATTENDED!!!
And now for the modes. Hold a button while starting HDLoader and when you hear the harddisk spinning up you can release the button. The mode is shown in the top right corner of the screen (the default UDMA-4 is in action if no mode is shown). The mode is selected by holding the following buttons when HDLoader starts up (see the pattern?):
MDMA0 - UP
MDMA1 - TRIANGE
MDMA2 - LEFT
UDMA0 - RIGHT
UDMA1 - SQUARE
UDMA2 - CIRCLE
UDMA3 - DOWN
added the ToxicOS v0.2 Core patch by Zer0-X (and i think crazyc). this was added for persons wanting to play splinter cell: pandora tomorrow which (i think) is not playable without this patch.
this is a bit oldschool patch, (thanks Zer0-X for the source), but unless i'm mistaken this patch is still needed for the splinter cell: pandora tomorrow game. if i'm wrong or this particular patch is useless, then please let me know.
revised the gui by getting rid of the skinned look. all functions are now accessible at the bottom of the form. you must also check a box designating either an unpacked or original hdl file as your chosen source file. also got rid of any help forms that simply contained the original hdl patch help files. these files are now included as is. really no need to add a gui around text files
added the HDD anti-spindown patch by crazyc
now has the ability to use an Original Retail HDL v1.0 file for any option you would use an Unpacked HDL file. In other words, there is no longer any 'unpacked only' functions. in case adding the v1.0 above causes any confusion... this means THE original HDL ELF released. there still is no support for any retail versions of HDL or HDA beyond the true original.
