Added Radeon X1250.

I have this card in my laptop, but it is billed as an X1270, as opposed
to an X1250. Do these two cards have the same chip/card IDs? Is the
X1250 chip ID 0x791E instead (currently labeled as an "X1200")?


This was a rather ambiguous card id, so pci subsystem id, not a pci
device id.

Nobody knows which is which when you mention X1200, X1250 or X1270,
sometimes it is also Xpress 12x0. All we can go on is pci-ids, and we
generally label these IGP devices are rs690 (the technical, correct
term, not the marketing speak abovee).

This commit added the board/card/subsystem ids for a HP/Compaq laptop
with an rs690.

I've been going back through numerous log files and dmesg outputs from
others online (as well as driver .inf files) and see roughly the same
thing. I am curious if there's some sort of other register from which
you can query "capabilities" from the card (like CPUID, but maybe
"GPUID"?)...

We will never directly refer to this device as X12x0. We will use the
only correct naming, which is rs690. This uniquely identifies this
device as an r5xx IGP.
