j820, the saga

I committed a version of init.S that does autodetection of RAM bank 2
if you compile it with -DCONFIG_JORNADA820_F1267A_AUTODETECT.
*Please* try the kernel I precompiled and tell me if it works on your machine,
particularly if it's a 16MB only machine.

My kernels don't dig pcmcia, whether with George's cardmgr or mine.
I have no idea why it doesn't work, but I suspect the CVS version
to be broken or incompatible with my toolchain.
Symptom: timeout when inserting card.
Can any of you upload a zImage so I may test?
Can any of you test my zImage and/or ramdisk?
What are your diff wrt CVS?

I haven't yet had time to see why hpcboot won't load my 3.3.2 compiled kernel.

Either we can have a compressed ramdiskimage,
or we can compress the whole j820 image for hpcboot to decompress.
What do you think is best?
I committed ramdiskimage.gz as the default,
but as an afterthought, think that j820.gz would be a better idea.

j820/init.S now properly uses ATAG. In jornada820.c, fixup is now empty.
The ramdisk Makefile stuff has separate make clean and make distclean:
make clean doesn't remove the .tar.gz that are downloaded from the Internet.
