    * Platform independent architecture improvements to facilitate
porting to new platforms
          o New /platform directory containing heirarchical structure of
platform specific code to reduce #ifdef usage and code duplication
          o Platform specific #defines in /firmware replaced by inline
functions included from the /platform heirarchy
          o Keymappings for applications to be based upon platform
independent functions (eg next item, last item, up in heirarchy etc.)
which are defined in a single platform specific file. No #ifdef KEYPAD_*
statements to remain.
          o All #ifdefs in /apps to be function specific (eg HAS_RTC,
HAS_RECORD, HAS_MENU_BAR) rather than hardware specific
