The name of sblink seems more clear, but for most cases, the name of sblk
only appears in K8/Fam10 codes, so it didn't cause much confusions.

A more consistent way to get HT southbridge link in sb700 chipset is to include
the <cpu/amd/amdk8_sysconf.h> or <cpu/amd/amdfam10_sysconf.h>, and
use global variable sysconf.sblk. For now, fam10 codes set sysconf.sblk during
early romstage, but K8 codes didn't. Maybe we should fix K8 coeds to set
sysconf.sblk earlyer, and use it in later device drivers.
