* Make sure Block Lock Bits get cleared in R360MPI flash driver

* MPC823 LCD driver: Fill color map backwards, to allow for steady
  display when Linux takes over

* Patch by Erwin Rol, 27 Feb 2003:
  Add support for RTEMS (this time for real).

* Add support for "bmp info" and "bmp display" commands to load
  bitmap images; this can be used (for example in a "preboot"
  command) to display a splash screen very quickly after poweron.

* Add support for 133 MHz clock on INCA-IP board

* Patch by Lutz Dennig, 10 Apr 2003:
  Update for R360MPI board

* Add new meaning to "autostart" environment variable:
  If set to "no", a standalone image passed to the
  "bootm" command will be copied to the load address
  (and eventually uncompressed), but NOT be started.
  This can be used to load and uncompress arbitrary
  data.

  Changed DHCP client to use IP address from server option field #54
  from the OFFER packet in the server option field #54 in the REQUEST
  packet. This fixes a problem using a Windows 2000 DHCP server,
  where the DHCP-server is not the TFTP-server.

  - the length calculation for files was wrong, sometimes resulting
    in short file reads.
  - data copying now optionally takes fragment version numbers into
    account, to avoid copying from older data.
  See doc/README.JFFS2 for details.
