Yes.  Most boards have the version in the first bytes of flash, but this
was not possible on the 82xx because of the HRCW, so it was put in
.data.  This set up was copied for the 83xx (which also has a HRCW).  My
change moves it back to .text just after the HRCW.  I put also the
u-boot magic number back in in honor of Wolfgang. ;-)

If you change the file names in the patch, it probably would apply.  :-)
 I intend to do this (perhaps literally), but ran out of ambition tonight.

Best regards,
