[fpc-pascal] AVR Busy Wait implementation

Thanks for the hint! I've had declared delay_loop_1 and delay_loop_2
just inside the implementation section.

Maybe these points should be added to documentation for inlining?
- assembler procecedure currently can't be inlined (may change)
- all procedures called by the procedure and all types used by variables
inside the procedure and must be visible at the calling point; this also
disallows unit private types (but procedure local types are okay).
