MontaVista 2.6 Kernel support for Xilinx ML40x

  I've got the LSP, and have booted it on the ML40X.

  In my opinion it is currently unstable, but that is my opinion.  I've not
been able to keep it powered up for 24 hours without it locking up on the
RS232 serial terminal.  Also, running updatedb over nfs causes it to abort
with a kernel panic, although that might be an interraction with the nfs
server.  (Although even if the nfs server dies (which it did not), I don't
expect a kernel panic).

   I have had it run over 6 hours without issue, so I expect subtle memory
leaks, not serious problems.
