Patch by Jean-Paul Saman, 11 April 2006

Booting an Linux kernel and rootfilesystem image with bootm 0x24800000 
0x24600000 (for instance) aborts on some ARM systems with "Data CRC error 
.." on the filesystem image. The cause of this error is the ARM RealView 
Debugger (RVDS) not writing the last word through JTAG to the systems 
memory when it is not word aligned.
The patch adds an option to tools/mkimage.c, called -p, which will always 
make sure the ramdisk image is aligned on a word boundary. The switch is 
optional. It is tested against todays git repository.

* Add option -p to mkimage to always align a ramdisk image to word
