[PATCH] m68knommu: create configurable RAM setup
Reworked the way RAM regions are defined. Instead of coding all the variations for each board type we now just configure RAM base and size in the usual Kconfig setup. This much simplifies the code, and makes it a lot more flexible when setting up new boards or board varients.

+comment "RAM configuration"
+ hex "Address of the base of RAM"
+ default "0"
+ Define the address that RAM starts at. On many platforms this is
+ 0, the base of the address space. And this is the default. Some
+ platforms choose to setup their RAM at other addresses within the
+ processor address space.
+ hex "Size of RAM (in bytes)"
+ default "0x400000"
+ Define the size of the system RAM. If you select 0 then the
+ kernel will try to probe the RAM size at runtime. This is not
+ supported on all CPU types.
+ hex "Address of the base of system vectors"
+ default "0"
+ Define the address of the the system vectors. Commonly this is
+ put at the start of RAM, but it doesn't have to be. On ColdFire
+ platforms this address is programmed into the VBR register, thus
+ actually setting the address to use.
+ hex "Address of the base of kernel code"
+ default "0x400"
+ Typically on m68k systems the kernel will not start at the base
+ of RAM, but usually some small offset from it. Define the start
+ address of the kernel here. The most common setup will have the
+ processor vectors at the base of RAM and then the start of the
+ kernel. On some platforms some RAM is reserved for boot loaders
+ and the kernel starts after that. The 0x400 default was based on
+ a system with the RAM based at address 0, and leaving enough room
+ for the theoretical maximum number of 256 vectors.
