I'm surprised. My stage1 SMP patch was never merged IIRC, so stack
trashing is expected on any non-UP v3 boot. But other than that, v3
stage1 code worked pretty well. The ELFboot code in there should be
dropped (was default off anyway) and then we have a pretty readable startup.

If you're talking about doing too many things at once, I fully agree.
Once the tree is CBFS-only and once Kconfig works for all actively
developed boards, we will have a mostly stable tree again and it would
be cool to look at importing stage1 (and possibly stage0) from v3.
