Not a whole lot, but I did anyways. :)

This compiles and works on PReP. I have not even compile-tested the
other boards I may have impacted, but I tried to be careful.

I moved ISA initialization out of decompress_kernel() and into the
(weak) load_kernel() so that it only happens once: misc-prep.c calls it
in load_kernel(); no need to do it again.
