[RFC 0/2] MIPS: fix code relocation routine

At the moment MIPS relocation code routine has at least two problems:

1. the first problem is fixed in the 'MIPS: relocate_code: fix barebox image size'
   patch from this patchseries.

2. relocate_code() calls flush_cache_all().
   flush_cache_all() uses 'struct cpuinfo_mips current_cpu_data' data fields.
   These data fields are initialized in r4k_cache_init().

   However in the current implementation the r4k_cache_init() function
   is called __AFTER__ relocate_code().

   This cache problem can't be discovered via qemu.
