That's why I wrote that code - to make it board configurable.

Not on any 83xx board.

Maybe it does in misc_init_r() of tqm85xx.c, but I'm not sure.  It programs 
OR0/BR0 and maybe OR1/BR1, but not LBLAWAR1, but I don't know what affect that 
has.  But since that's an 85xx board, this code doesn't apply.
