[sdiy] Tri-core phase reset to +5v or -5v

The original Intellijel Rubicon had that feature.  There was a panel switch
for determining whether it reset to +5 or -5 volts.  It's very easy to do.
You simply follow the integrator with a unity gain inverter with -5V also
summed in at unity gain to shift the integrator output by +5V.  Send this
inverted and level shifted output through another inverter then into the
comparator.  Switching between the outputs of the two inverters selects
between reset voltages.
