FS#7497 - Add a magic string to bootloader version to enable locating it in the binary

Simple patch to add RBBLver prefix + suffix to the bootloader version string. rbutil can scan the binary bootloader file to locate this string to determine the bootloader version. can now be updated to include bootloader.version files alongside the binaries (e.g. extract the bootloader version from the binary using od -S 6 | grep RBBLver )

Works fine on my H10 and Sansa.

Tried it on my Gigabeat, but th bootloader is non-functional because of commit 13821.

Works now on Gigabeat since r14052.

Useful? Not useful?

Sounds pretty useful to me.
