The patch works nicely on a custom (roughly Icecube) based 5200B board,
with a Renesas static ram, no partitions and a jffs2 file system on
it. I had to add some more tweaks to physmap_of.c as to work around
the 5200's limitations accessing chips in 16-bit mode through the local
bus, which is a lot easier and cleaner with this patch than with the
old one (of 05 June 09).
