[ELDK] make canyonlands_config

Thanks Wolfgang for the feedback. 

However it looked like I was having some good luck yesterday up until I
flashed a new u-boot. This is the startup output once I got Chapter 6
correctly done and Chapter 7 correctly done. Note the "Created:"
date/time which is inline with when I made the denx linux image.
Additionally I could do an iminfo on the memory location of the linux
distro and it came back with valid output (that I could tell). When I
did the iminfo command on the memory location on the tree blob it stated
"Bad Magic Number".

With the output below do you think it still isn't supported? It looks
like I was getting close.

This is neither one nor the other.  It has the same processor (440EPx)
as the Sequoia board, but looks completely different.

This board appears not to be supported by mainline U-Boot nor Linux.

Best regards,
