Hi Joe

Without seeing the sources, I can't really say too much more, but I can tell
you in principle that you're making this way too hard if all you're trying to
do is update Redboot.

Freescale tends to do their own versions of Redboot, and (no offense
Freescale folks) they aren't the cleanest ports.

I don't really have cycles to dig through their tree right now unfortunately.
You may consider talking to eCosCentric if you want a supported port to the
iMX31.
