[git commit] openblocks_a6_defconfig: improve/fix configuration

Peter Korsgaard-2
commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=4b6599146165aae70b388fd589b3353859d82914
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

The board has an ethernet interface, so enable DHCP for it.

The used flash chip uses 16K erase blocks, so use that for JFFS2:

mtdinfo -a
Name:                           user
Type:                           nand
Eraseblock size:                16384 bytes, 16.0 KiB
Amount of eraseblocks:          1915 (31375360 bytes, 29.9 MiB)
Minimum input/output unit size: 512 bytes
Sub-page size:                  256 bytes
OOB size:                       16 bytes
Character device major/minor:   90:10
Bad blocks are allowed:         true
Device is writable:             true

While we're at it, add a readme explaining how to build and upload the build
to the board.

+Openblocks A6
+This default configuration will allow you to start experimenting with the
+buildroot environment for the Openblocks A6. With the current configuration
+it will bring-up the board, and allow access through the serial console.
+How to build it
+Configure Buildroot:
+    $ make openblocks_a6_defconfig
+Compile everything:
+    $ make
+Updating board over TFTP
+Copy the content of output/images to the root of your TFTP server.
+Connect serial and ethernet, power up board and stop it in U-Boot:
+DRAM (DDR2) CAS Latency = 5 tRP = 5 tRAS = 14 tRCD=5
+DRAM CS[0] base 0x00000000   size 512MB
+DRAM Total size 512MB  16bit width
+Addresses 8M - 0M are saved for the U-Boot usage.
+Mem malloc Initialization (8M - 7M): Done
+POST:  mac verify Eth0 PASSED
+CPU : Marvell Feroceon (Rev 1)
+Streaming disabled
+Write allocate disabled
+USB 0: host mode
+Net:   egiga0
+Hit any key to stop autoboot:  0
+Load kernel from tftp:
+setenv serverip <tftp-server-ip>
+setenv bootfile uImage.kirkwood-openblocks_a6
+bootp && tftp
+Write it to nand:
+nand erase 0x590000 0x1c5c000
+nand write.e $loadaddr 0x590000 0x1c5c000
+Load rootfs from tftp:
+setenv serverip <tftp-server-ip>
+setenv bootfile rootfs.jffs2
+bootp && tftp
+Write it to nand:
+nand erase 0x2214000 0x1dc4000
+nand write.jffs2 $loadaddr 0x2214000 0x1dc4000
+Configure kernel to use rootfs:
+setenv root /dev/mtdblock5 rootfstype=jffs2
