OK. Do you want to take a look at fixing the omap1 entry-macro.S in a similar
way to omap2 entry-macro.S so it works on 7xx too? See the ifdef MULTI_OMAP2
in entry-macro.S. 15xx is ARM925 based, so that's easy to detect. But for
detecting between ARM926 based 7xx and 16xx you would have to use some other
