This jumper is there for the BGO/BGI witch comme from the 68030 and goes to
the falcon mother board. If you remove this jumper, the 68030 can't take
possesion of the falcon bus so the computer doesn't boot because the 68030
ask for the bus but never receive BGACK because the combel doesn't receive
BG signal.
