sbc8349: combine HRCW flash and u-boot image flash



Up to this point in time, the sbc8349 board was storing the u-boot
image in flash 2x.  One for the HRCW value at the beginning of
flash (0xff80_0000), and once close to the end of flash (0xfff8_0000)
for the actual image that got executed.

This moves the TEXT_BASE to be the beginning of flash, which makes
the second copy of the image redundant, and frees up the flash
from the end of the environment storage to the end of the flash
device itself.

Restoring a corrupted or missing flash image:
=============================================
Note that U-boot versions up to and including 2009.06 had essentially
two copies of u-boot in flash; one at the very beginning, which set
the HRCW, and one at the very end, which was the image that was run.
As of this point in time, the two have been combined into just one
at the beginning of flash, which provides both the HRCW, and the image
that is executed. This frees up the remainder of flash for other uses.
Use of the u-boot command "fli" will indicate what parts are in use.
Details for storing U-boot to flash using a Wind River ICE can be found
on page 19 of the board manual (request ERG-00328-001). The following
