Committed, with the slight change to only print the
informational notice iff we are verbose.  For those folks
where arbitrary baud rates do work, getting the warning
each time might otherwise be annoying.

When trying to use a non-standard BAUD rate (195313 in my case), avrdude comes up with this and then stops;

avrdude: serial_baud_lookup(): unknown baud rate: 195313

After patching the source to bypass that error and just return the rate, it turns out that arbitrary BAUD rates work fine with my setup and programmer and there seems to be no need for this to fail.

Joerg Wunsch pointed out that arbitrary rates may not work with every driver. The attached patch makes it so that avrdude first searches the default BAUD rates and returns the associated constants. If it is not a default rate, then it issues a warning and returns the non-standard rate.

I've compiled and tested this on Windows and it works. I've compiled it on Linux (which works), but cannot test it there.
