- Hymod board database mods: add "who" field and new xilinx chip types
- provide new "init_cmd_timeout()" function so code external to
"common/main.c" can use the "reset_cmd_timeout()" function before
entering the main loop
- add DTT support for adm1021 (new file dtt/adm1021.c; config
slightly different. see include/configs/hymod.h for an example
(requires CONFIG_DTT_ADM1021, CONFIG_DTT_SENSORS, and

behaves in a similar way to "eeprom_read()" etc.
- add 8260 FCC ethernet loopback code (new "eth_loopback_test()"
function which is enabled by defining CONFIG_ETHER_LOOPBACK_TEST)
- gdbtools copyright update
- ensure that set_msr() executes the "sync" and "isync" instructions

config.mk to allow board configurations to override the GNU
linker script, selected via the LDSCRIPT, make variable, and to
give an initial value to the OBJCFLAGS make variable
- 8260 i2c enhancement:
o correctly extends the timeout depending on the size of all
queued messages for both transmit and receive
o will not continue with receive if transmit times out
o ensures that the error callback is done for all queued tx
and rx messages
o correctly detects both tx and rx timeouts, only delivers one to
the callback, and does not overwrite an earlier error
o logic in i2c_probe now correct
- add "vprintf()" function so that "panic()" function can be
