rx1950 and upstream haret

Finally got issue with mainline haret not booting linux on rx1950 fixed. It was so trivial... Haret modified by Denis Grigoriev initializes uart, mainline haret does not. Linux can't boot on s3c24xx with uart unitialized when it uses uart for low-level messages due to bug.

Fix for kernel was submited by Juergen Beisert in August, 2009 and can be found here.

Patches for haret (with workaround and proper rx1950 detection) can be found here.

Update: I've submited patch that adds configurable kernel offset to haret maillist. It seems that mainline haret will be able to boot linux on rx1950 soon :)

2nd update: My patches were included into mainline haret. Neat :)
