ALIGNMENT_TRAP depends on CPU_CP15_MMU, so it's quite reasonable that
__clear_cr should exist in this case - but it doesn't because it's in
mmu.c.  I guess we need __clear_cr moved to arch/arm/kernel/setup.c.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: now at 9.7Mbps down 460kbps up... slowly
improving, and getting towards what was expected from it.
