U-Boot v1 upstream preparation status update

As already done at IRC, I like to give short U-Boot v1 upstream preparation status update (common branch [1]):

1) Before we send a first patch set to U-Boot list, upstream should update mach-types. I sent a patch for this to U-Boot list. Got a private answer from Jean-Christophe PLAGNIOL-VILLARD. He will integrate this patch, but "Actually I've a lot a work so I've choose to handle fix a the of my TODO and prefer to work on new feature first". Cross fingers.

2) At weekend, I will try to test to switch to armv5 instead of armv7a and arm-linux- for mainline. Thanks to koen and ldesnogu for the hints.

3) No answer/fix regarding my mail for jffs2 changes in our git yet [2]. Currently I'm thinking about just sending a patch to remove this.

4) I had a first look to split our ~350k OMAP3 U-Boot patch in parts < 40k for upstream sending. Seems that this will be harder than I initially thought (have seperate functionality in seperate patches vs. don't create too many small patches). Lets see.

Best regards,
