Hi Russell,

Thanks for the input. Seems like I trusted get_maintainer.pl blindly and 
wasn't selective - it resulted in recipient list much too long.

As for this patch, I think I went too far with adding it. The board boots 
without it properly, and since it covers more general Cortex-M related 
problems I guess it should be excluded from next iteration of the whole 

The problems it adresses may still required further discussion, but I 
think it should not block the whole thing.
