Applied generic bits to u-boot-nand-flash/next (minus the complete
removal of hang(), which is pending the ARM change).  The ARM part should
go through the ARM maintainer, and I still think you can have the
exceptions hang with a branch-to-self without needing external code;
something like this (apologies if it's been too long since I've done ARM

	b	reset
	sub	pc, pc, #4
	sub	pc, pc, #4
	sub	pc, pc, #4
	sub	pc, pc, #4
	sub	pc, pc, #4
	sub	pc, pc, #4
	sub	pc, pc, #4

	. = _start + 64

This would make it easier to see what happened with a JTAG, and prevent
any possibility of it getting stuck in a loop that keeps banging on the
flash chip.
