The work enclosed in the patches is not fully-working yet, but I
wanted to share it so that others can help, and to avoid others in
trying to do the same thing.

Basically, the goal of this patch set is to add a defconfig for the
MCF5208 Coldfire platform emulated by Qemu, which is a non-MMU

The proposed defconfig generates a system where the kernel boots, but
panics when the first userspace program exits (the kernel complains
that someone tried to kill init).

I think patches 1 to 4 could be merged now, while the 5th patch
(adding the defconfig) needs more work to fix this problem before
being submitted. The other annoying part is that a patch for Qemu is
also needed (it is part of this 5th patch).

Note that I have also done a similar work on the AT91 ARM noMMU
platform emulated by SkyEye. I hope to send the patches soon.


The following changes since commit 8876b6751e0bc19a3754290061808f0f8420708e:

  Fix makedevs to allow longer path names (2012-04-08 19:46:52 +0200)
