A better nasm highlight USB boot code

So this the product with some code cleanup. I also set file extension to be .nasm and mime as "nasm". The decimal is odd color, but I like to see that decimal is different so I don't think I am doing hex when it compiles as decimal and bites me in the rear. And here is another useful link for kate syntax highlighting.
