[U-Boot] [PATCH 1/2] ARM: imx6qlogic: Cleanup board_init_f and enable spl_early_init

According to the the documentation, call spl_early_init from board_init_f
to make the device tree and driver model early before board_init_r.
Per the workflow found in crt0.S, we don't need to clear BSS in
board_init_f nor do we need to call board_init_r since that will be
done for us.

This patch removes the unneeded function calls from board_init_f and
enables early access to device tree and DM which will permit the use of
SPL_DM_SERIAL in the future.
