From: Fabio Estevam <fabio.estevam@freescale.com>

Create a README.mxs file that contains instructions on how to use U-boot for
both MX23 and MX28.

As boot from NAND has only been tested on mx28, make it clear that it only 
applies to MX28.

While at it, do some small cleanups for the sake of consistency:
- Use "MX28" instead of "i.MX28"
- Use "section" instead of "chapter" when referring to specific parts of the
reference manual chapters.

i.MX23 / i.MX28 instead of MXS ? MXS is no processor, maybe processor family?
