I say NACK to dropping this code.

Please don't get the code drop frenzy! There are enough other open
working lots.

There's a register in the SC520 which lets you map the ROM to a certain
address. On the TS5300 it was strapped to 0x9400000, other SC520 systems
may be configured differently. But basically all have their flash at
non-standard positions afaik.

If you want to write code to do the probing, I'll gladly ACK it. I can't
test anymore - the TS5300 stayed back at the linuxtag in 07. No idea
what happened to it.
