    omap3_beagle: enable the use of a plain text file

    Using the new env import command it is possible to use plain text files instead
    of script-images. Plain text files are much easier to handle.

    E.g. If your boot.scr contains the following:
    -----------------------------------
    setenv dvimode 1024x768-16@60
    run loaduimage
    run mmcboot
    -----------------------------------
    you could create a file named uEnv.txt and use that instead of boot.scr:
    -----------------------------------
    dvimode=1024x768-16@60
    uenvcmd=run loaduimage; run mmcboot
    -----------------------------------
    The variable uenvcmd (if existent) will be executed (using run) after uEnv.txt
    was loaded. If uenvcmd doesn't exist the default boot sequence will be started,
    therefore you could just use
    -----------------------------------
    dvimode=1024x768-16@60
    -----------------------------------
    as uEnv.txt because loaduimage and mmcboot is part of the default boot sequence

    omap4: panda: generate a unique usbethaddr

    The panda board has a usb nic but the nic has no
    rom. Use the die-id to generate a unique address.
    This is derived from an RFC kernel patch by Andy Green
    that does the same thing:

    cmd_pxecfg: only call do_bootm with argc == 4 if fdtaddr != NULL

    Otherwise if you build with CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT, you'll get a segmentation
    fault at boot_get_fdt, as it expects argv[3] to be valid if argc == 4.

    Add uboot "fdt_high" enviroment variable

    Add a new "fdt_high" enviroment variable. This can be used to control (or prevent) the
    relocation of the flattened device tree on boot. It can be used to prevent relocation
    of the fdt into highmem. The variable behaves similarly to the existing "initrd_high"
    variable.
