[U-Boot-Users] ARM - console, device list, system calls.

Well running though the commands on my ARM based board I noticed that
coninfo hung my system.  After a little code inspection I see that the
generic ARM code in /lib_arm/board.c fails to init up what appears to be a
few fairly useful u-boot features (device, console, and syscall).  After
some fairly simple changes, I was able to add in device_init() and
console_init_r() into board.c .  This results in the device and console
abstractions working.  The code size doesn't grow but by a few bytes.
Getting syscall working is a bit more work than I'm willing to try just now.

Its there any reason why this was not done for ARM?  From my brief
inspection they seem pretty useful.  I'll send a patch for it later, it
really only a couple lines to board.c and devices.c .
