Is this why I'm having so much hassle getting the ngw100 board to 
compile in git HEAD ? eg. 'board_init_f' missing. If thats the case, I'd 
appreciate a kick in the right direction on how to apply the patches 
myself (never having used git apart from getting the u-boot tree in the 
first place).

I'd really prefer to start with HEAD than the patched 1.1.4
