malta: add script & instructions to flash U-boot

This patch adds a script which may be used with MIPS Navigator Console
and a MIPS Nagivator Probe in order to flash U-boot to a MIPS Malta
development board.

Please see the newly added doc/README.malta for usage instructions.

MIPS Malta board
How to flash using a MIPS Navigator Probe:
- Ensure that your Malta has jumper JP1 fitted. Without this jumper you will
be unable to flash your Malta using a Navigator Probe.
- Connect Navigator Console to your probe and Malta as usual.
- Within Navigator Console run the following commands:
source /path/to/u-boot/board/malta/flash-malta-boot.tcl
flash-boot /path/to/u-boot/u-boot.bin
- You should now be able to reboot your Malta to a U-boot shell.
