Adds different wiring mode for the LCD screen.

The legacy atmel LCDC IP uses a non standard color mode,
"BGR-555.1" instead "RGB-565". The major part of graphic stacks 
for embedded systems uses only "RGB-565". It is possible to swap 
LCD IOs instead of doing this bit swapping by software (See 
application note AT91SAM9 LCD Controller
http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc6300.pdf)

This wire swapping is done on the at91sam9rl-ek board (board code 
using this patch will come later).

Does RGB:565 always imply RGB:888 and vice versa?

If not, I think it would be better with separate flags for the possible
wirings:
   * 18-bit BGR-555.1 / 24-bit BGR-888
   * 16-bit RGB-565
   * 24-bit RGB-888

Or maybe I misunderstand something?
