PCSX2 SVN r4786

"r4783
We need to combine these globals into a common struct one day.
This was really unsafe to do. (My fault)
Fixes savestates in Breath of Fire 5.
r4784
Games database: Load from the exe folder (only affects Install mode. Portable was already OK): Prevent DB-not-found error if previous version wasn't uninstalled properly.
r4785
Some work on the disc tray code. Got rid of an unsafe global, changed and commented it a bit.
This is some messy work of mine, gotta admit ><
r4786
Tray code once more:
Added the tray state variable to the cdvd struct, making it safer and taking care of a previously unhandled situation.
Surprisingly this didn't break old savestate compatibility."
