[PATCH openbmc v3 1/2] meta-phosphor/u-boot: Move to newer version

I have given some time recently to the OpenBmc U-Boot and came up with
a first initial port of the aspeed code on a recent version, v2016.03.
Here is the tree :


There is still quite a lot of cleanup to do, the code has warnings, some
configure defines are probably obsolete. This is clearly not finished yet.
But it is usable.

These compilers on jessie generate a u-boot.bin file which boots a
palmetto bmc with success :

gcc version 5.2.0 (crosstool-NG crosstool-ng-1.22.0)
gcc version 4.8.4 20141219 (release) (4.8.4-1+11-1)

So if some of you has time (and a flash programmer), could you please
give it a try ? I will be glad to have positive feedback. You can curse
me if not :)

Then, I would be interested to see how we proceed from there to include
more changes.
