    floppy: remove register keyword use from floppy driver
    The floppy drive is slow.  These days I see absolutely no good reason why 
    floppy driver should try to gain a tiny bit of speed by telling gcc to
    optimize access to some variables via the register keyword.  Better to just
    leave gcc free to do whatever optimizations it deduces to be sane and not
    hamper it by telling it that some variables in the floppy driver are special
    and need to be fast (they don't).
