* Add zero-copy ramdisk support (requires corresponding kernel support!)
* Patch by Kyle Harris, 20 May 2003:
In preparation for an ixp port, rename cpu/xscale and arch-xscale
into cpu/pxa and arch-pxa.

setenv initrd_high 00c00000
If you set initrd_high to 0xFFFFFFFF, this is an
indication to U-Boot that all addresses are legal
for the Linux kernel, including addresses in flash
memory. In this case U-Boot will NOT COPY the
ramdisk at all. This may be useful to reduce the
boot time on your system, but requires that this
feature is supported by your Linux kernel.
ipaddr - IP address; needed for tftpboot command
loadaddr - Default load address for commands like "bootp",
