Improved panic screen: added countdown timer, extended to ZX Desktop

Fixed ZX-Uno bugs:
-Fixed bugs on mmc and flash storage layer which prevented to update bios, esxdos rom or entire flash from the BIOS
-Fixed chloe mmu mapping: bootm has priority. If bootm=1, can't map chloe. If bootm=0, can be chloe or +2a

Fixed TBBlue bugs:
-Fixed relative sprites: when anchor sprite is not visible, negative coordinates, detecting unified/composite, mirror, rotation
-Fixed 4bpp sprites: pattern calculating, transparency, anchor
-Fixed clipping (affected scrollnutter demo in the right round corners)
-Fixed writing on divmmc memory when layer2 active

Fixed CPC bugs:
-Fixed vsync and hsync interrupts
-Fixed border colour
-Fixed AY chip register selection
-Fixed CRTC interrupts. After a CRTC interrupt with Z80 interrupts disabled, they were not fired when enabling Z80 interrupts
-Fixed setting bit 4 of the "Select screen mode and rom configuration" register of the Gate-Array and interrupt request
-Fixed RETURN key

Fixed IDE commands which affected almost all IDE firmwares: fatware, mdos, etc:
-Fixed IDE command ECH Identify Drive
-Fixed IDE command 91H Initialize Drive Parameters

Fixed annoying flickering in menu using XWindows video driver
Fixed Mac OS retina display window
Fixed Mac OS full screen
Fixed loading General Sound rom
Fixed segfaults on fileselector +3 DSK screen previews using Speedlock protected disks or bad disks
Fixed segfaults on fileselector TRD screen previews using protected disks or bad disks
Fixed receiving large snapshots on ZRCP/ZENG
Fixed pixel color on text all-to-pixel text rendering (color inversion)
Fixed DivIDE/DivMMC mapram behaviour
Fixed some GUI style colours

Some other minor bugfixes and improvements
