barebox initcalls for a beagle xM

  for possible teaching purposes, i posted the initcalls invoked both
for MLO and barebox.bin on my beagle xM:

to perhaps walk folks through the steps of barebox booting.  given
time, i might expand on that page later to dig into the initcalls
themselves, but just seeing the list has some value for people trying
to follow along what it takes to get to a prompt.


p.s.  i'm still not sure what the value is of the "early_initcalls"
variable here:

$ grep -r early_initcall *
common/startup.c:extern initcall_t __barebox_initcalls_start[],

it's declared as external but it doesn't seem to be used anywhere.  is
it a leftover from earlier?
