From: Stefan Roese <sr@denx.de>

SPL NOR flash booting support is quite simple. Only copying of the
images is needed.

On MPC5xxx we need to make sure to only use the standard memcpy()
implementation and not the MPC5xxx specific one. As the MPC5xxx
version has some complexity which is not needed for this SPL
booting.

Changes in v5:
- Add Stefan's patch for NOR loading in SPL
- Drop mpc5xxx-specific memcpy changes, these should be handled by the
  Makefile logic (noticed by Daniel Schwierzeck, changed by me)
