Update to Binary Firmware Exceptions

Two minor exceptions have been added to the Licensing Guidelines:

A new exception has been added to permit prebuilt binary QEMU ROMs
implementing BIOS or Firmware for QEMU system targets to be packaged in
those situations where it is not practical or possible to build them
from source, as long as the corresponding source code is also included
in the Source RPM package.

The wording of the Binary Firmware exception has been amended slightly
to permit the packaging and inclusion of firmware files which are
necessary to boot Fedora on some devices (e.g. raspberrypi), as long as
the standard exception criteria are met.
