Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+=========================================================

+- CPLD memory mapping
+
+ The board designers chose to use high address lines for controlling
+ access to the CPLD registers. It turns out to be a big waste
+ because we're using an MMU and must map IO space into virtual
+ memory. The result is that we have to make a mapping for every
+ register.
+
+- Serial Console
+
+ It may be OK not to use the serial console option if the user passes
+ the console device name to the kernel. This deserves some exploration.
