L4Android minor issue report

I found a small issue during the build process of L4Android for x86 
target (arm target build works as expected). When using the make command 
to generate images (e.g make grub2iso lx_gingerbread-x86), the following 
error appears:

Processing entry 'l4_gingerbread'
Could not find 'l4_gingerbread.cfg' with path '...'
make[1]: *** [grub2iso] Error 2
make[1]: Exiting Directory 
make: *** [grub2iso] Error 2

This is caused by an outdated module entry in the 'modules-x86.list' 
file in the 'configs' git repository (and L4Android Website in the 
'Create ISO Image' instructions). Here are some 'x86' suffixes missing.

With the above patch, the images are built successfully.
It would be nice if you update the L4Android Website ("Create ISO 
Image") and the configs repository.
