SMC7004VWBR uClinux Running Procedure

 upload zImage-smc to hardware, address 0x40000 and execute it there 

FIXME: add procedure through JTAG (quickier!?)

to upload, attach level shifter to UART header, 115200 8N1, no flow control
turn unit on, press a key to interrupt boot, 
enter administrative mode with "!" then do:
