Woiw. You managed to find a  file  in  U-Boot  that  has  never  been
touched  since  the  initial  checkin  to  the (by then) PPCBoot tree
(well, actually there was a modification - I added a GPL header about
7 years ago :-)

Right. It used to get created by a make rule in the 2.4 Linux kernel
tree (see arch/ppc/kernel/Makefile).

Please feel free to clean it up - remove unused #define's and add what
you need. Please also remove the "DO NOT EDIT" comment.
