- Famicom
- Super Famicom
- Game Boy
- Game Boy Color
- Game Boy Advance

higan also supports the following subsystems:
- Super Game Boy
- BS-X Satellaview
- Sufami Turbo

higan Changelog:
- Super Famicom: added remaining generic board types
- icarus: improved Super Famicom heuristics
- icarus: reworked BS Memory heuristics
- icarus: reworked Sufami Turbo heuristics

Notes: this is really complicated, and is going to take a long time to
work 100% smoothly again.

Starting off, I am trying to get rid of the weird edge case zero-byte
SRAM mapping for the Cx4. It has the RAM region present, but returns
logic low (0x00) instead of open bus, when SRAM isn't present. I started
by making it `map=ram` instead of `ram/map`, which is gross, and then it ended
up detecing the map tag ending in RAM and pulling the Cx4 data RAM into that
slot. Ugh. The preservation board mapping is still as it was before and will
need to be updated once I get the syntax down.

The BS Memory and Sufami Turbo moving to the new `game/memory`
ending means I can't use the SuperFamicom::Cartridge::loadMemory
function that looks at the old-style rom/ram tags. Because I didn't
write more code, the result is those sub-carts won't load now.

The old heuristics were short-circuiting on SA1 before bothering with
BS-X slots, so that's why SD Gundam G-Next wasn't asking for a data
pack. The problem is, I don't know where the BS-X pack maps to on this
cartridge. It's at c0-ef on the other BS-X slotted cartridges, but
that's mapped to the SA1 on regular SA1 cartridges, so ... for now, it's
not actually mapped in.

I'm still struggling with naming conventions on all these boards. I'll
make a public post about that, though.
