powerpc/boot: Move ubldr to /boot/uboot, and make this a separate filesystem

Authored by jhibbits on Jan 2 2019, 3:53 AM.



Now that mpc85xx can boot via ubldr, move ubldr to a separate
filesystem, mounted on /boot/uboot, so that a fresh install can boot correctly.

Event Timeline

Longer-term, it might be better to avoid a proliferation of special cases like this to set LOADER_MSDOS_SUPPORT for the U-boot loader and make loader flexible enough to find the kernel etc. in the root rather than /boot. But this is fine for now.
