27th Nov 20:30 c8da2bc145: rbutil: Treat Aigo Eros clones as variant of it.

Fixes installing those builds, since they relied on the broken buildserver_modelname. Also simplifies internal handling.

27th Nov 19:54 8765650fe0: rbutil: Remove buildserver modelname string.

This isn't needed anymore, and the only player it was actually used for were the 8MB modded Archos ones, for which the usage was broken.

27th Nov 19:48 716643572d: rbutil: Remove Archos 8MB modded players.

The Archos Recorder has 2MB RAM and can be modded to 8MB. While we previously had separate builds for those the last release which it was built for is 3.4; installing for 8MB modded players was broken and installed the normal 2MB build.

Since we never provided builds for other hardware mods (like Ondio backlight mod, h100 series RTC mod) there isn't much reason to do so for the 8MB mod. Furthermore, given that the current state is broken and nobody complained the number of users of the mod can be assumed to be very low, and people with a modded player also building Rockbox on their own.
