I prefer we don't have #defines that change the size of a bd_t.
All board descriptors should be the same size, not all boards
use all of the fields, but that's OK.

This way, we have a better chance of using common Linux
binaries when that is useful.  Having different versions of
a kernel just because the bd_t is a different size doesn't
seem like a useful configuration.  If you want variability
in the parameters, let's use the bi_rec interface for passing
such information.
