This is xfloppy.device , release 1

It is a device to access the floppy drives, which can
save 1120 kb of data on a DD floppy
and 2240 kb on a HD floppy ( HD support is untested ! )

U can use it the same way as mfm.device , diskspare.device ,
trackdisk.device and the others.

This is a development version, it may have bugs

Particularily the reads and writes are pretty unreliable
and r/w errors are quite often.

I will try to 'fix' this by adding write verify and read retries.

More data is in the xfloppydev.h include file.
