Source Changes
--------------
Replaced kodb set with complete dump from known bootleg board
(different gfx rom layout). Added wofhfh bootleg from mame32plus.
Added SF2 Magic Turbo Delta bootleg as non-working. [David Haywood]

Added skeleton hikaru driver. [David Haywood, Guru]

Fixed possible 64-bit crash/hang with survival. [nuapete]

Driver's Eyes improvements: [Naibo]
- the communication work between CPU and 3D DSP should be limited
to the master M68000, if the address mapping is done in the shared
memory, master CPU would be disturbed by the slave one.
- DIP Switches
DIP3 ON for Screen on the left
DIP4 ON for Screen on the right
should not toggle on both
- The left, center and right screens have separate programs and
boards, each would work independantly. About projection angles of
left and right screen, the angle is correct on 'DRIVER'S EYES'
title screen, however in the tracks of demo mode it doesn't seem
correct.
- The game also features a pretty nice 2D sprite layer, which still
doesn't show up yet. It is known that the CPU does constantly feed
the 2D video memory some meaningful and logical data.
