[PATCHv3] Enable a way to provide the reason for "being here"

Many architectures support a way to detect why the bootloader is running.
This patch adds a global variable to be able to use the cause in some kind of
shell code to do special things on demand. For example to do an emergency boot,
when the last boot fails and the watchdog reactivates the hanging system.

V3 includes the detection for the i.MX28 SoC and fixes its usage for other
i.MX SoCs.

Comments are welcome.
