FS#10939 - Fix car mode on Sansa AMS players

Here’s a patch that causes mkamsboot to load OF only if a button is pressed. RB is loaded by default when USB is connected. This is important for car mode to work, but it may not be the right behavior for everyone since the RB USB stack cannot be used to transfer files.

The patch essentially causes mkamsboot to build the bootloader in such a way that it no longer checks for the presence of a USB connection at bootup, thus does not try to start OF if USB is connected.

Booting OF if an USB connection is detected is important if for some reason the code which checks button press doesn't work.

For example it could work on 10 devices but not on another, especially on models where we don't read buttons the same way than the OF.

So I am rejecting the patch now, we will need to look at it when an USB driver is implemented (the presence of USB in the bootloader could help prevent bricking)
