I see that PPC now has some of the silly utils where $(shell
objdump ...) in the Makefile would be a lot tighter.  Other
superficial but better ways like subdir-$(CONFIG_<board>) are
not used (instead ifdef CONFIG_NEC_PB100 $MAKE -- ugh!).  Not
sure why using CFLAGS/LOADADDR/.. from arch/mips/Makefile is not
done either... dup'ing this is bad.  Use "override CFLAGS" if it
needs to be re-constructed from GCCFLAGS,CPPFLAGS...

Apologies for playing "armchair coder".  I'll try to create Korva
version... but mine does it without benefit of a separate loader
(standalone vrboot style)... which might be a useful standard
build option.

Seems to me this is way more important than vrxx stuff... which
is already done and over... compression/initrd is in its infancy.
