I've been doing work on both IXP2800 and IXP2350 lately.
The first thing we need to do is set up the cpu/ixp directory to
accommodate these variations of processor, or create unique
directories to support them.  From there, it's just a standard
board support.

What I'm tempted to do is create a callout from the start.S to
board specific low level set up files.  I don't like all of that DDR
set up in hard coded assembly language, but maybe if we
can make it parameter driven it can be processor specific
and contained in the cpu/ixp directory.  There don't seem to
be many boards that use SPD EEPROM, they are just copies
of old Intel evaluation boards that solder the memory down
rather than use DIMMs.
