    malta: use unmapped flash base address · 10473d04

    The physical base address of the NOR flash is 0x1e000000
    on the Malta boards. The hardware also maps the first 4MiB
    of the flash into the 0x1fc00000-0x1fffffff range.
    Currently, U-Boot uses the mapped address to access the
    flash, which does not work in recent qemu versions.
    Since commit a427338b222b43197c2776cbc996936df0302f51
    (mips_malta: correct reading MIPS revision at 0x1fc00010)
    writing to the mapped address space causes a CPU exception.
    Due to the exception, U-Boot hangs during boot when it tries
    to detect the CFI flash chip.
    Use the correct physical address for the MALTA_FLASH_BASE
    constant to fix the problem. In order to avoid relocation
    problems, also update the CONFIG_SYS_{TEXT,MONITOR}_BASE
    The change makes it possible to start U-Boot on a Malta
    board emulated with Qemu 1.6.1 and 1.7.0-rc0. It also
    works on older versions (tested with 1.1.1, 1.2.2, 1.4.2,
