Subject[PATCH][2/5] floppy.c: Remove pointless register keywords

This patch removes the use of the 'register' keyword from floppy.c

Marking some variables 'register' may have made sense in the past (though I
doubt it for these ones), but these days I very much suspect that we would
rather grant gcc more freedom in how to handle the variables and I doubt
very much that in this day and age optimizing access to variables via
'register' makes any sense for a floppy driver. Let's just get rid of it.
