Ok, good. I'll fix that for at least new RDK board. Though, fixing
other boards would be not trivial because of backward compatibility
and such. I'll also use -immr for RDK.

Nobody have an MPC8568E manual handy. :-P I've just looked there..
no QE isn't relocatable.

Oh, and I lied regarding CPM being relocatable. It isn't,
at least CPM2 and at least on MPC8555E. What a pity.
