[Libre-soc-dev] Hard-coded Debian mirror in chroot dev script

While porting ls2 to the Nexys Video, I decided to run the dev scripts 
from scratch, to make sure the instructions given in 
https://libre-soc.org/HDL_workflow/ls2/ work for everybody.

The creation of the chroot goes somewhat slowly for me, since the Debian 
mirror is hard-coded to one in the UK 

I'd suggest either:

1) select a mirror using an environment variable (e.g. CHROOT_DEBIAN_MIRROR)

2) give the mirror URL to the script as a second (optional) command-line 

The default could be either:

1) empty (debootstrap seems to pick a fast mirror, for me, in that case)

2) keep it as of now, with the UK mirror.
