BUGboot 0.2 - Boot Linux from flash on Moto boards

I've released my bugboot package at 0.2 since it doesn't look like PPCBUG
will have residual data support in the RB facility any time soon.  This
adds a horrible kludge to copy  a residual data tree included in the
flash image.

What is it?

It's a simple tool and bootloader that creates a flashable image from a
Linux kernel/initrd and a dump of a residual data tree.  This image is
flashed onto any Motorola PowerPlus board 4/8/16 MB flash bank and then
Linux is booted from the flash.  This works on 
MVME23xx/24xx/26xx/27xx/36xx/46xx, MCPx750, and MTX variants.
