Enable Origen build at U-Boot-Linaro

Registered by Ricardo Salveti on 2011-11-17

Seems all needed Origen support is already upstream, so we should start enabling it at our u-boot-linaro package so the LT doesn't need to maintain their own u-boot package anymore.

Whiteboard

[jcrigby 17Nov2011] Was able to boot my origen with bins from u-boot-linaro but mounting root fails because the uuid on command line does not match the fs. This happened with original image also so it appears to be working as well as the LT version. Notified android team and LT and will mark WI's done when I hear back from them.
[rsalveti, Nov 17, 2011] I'm also able to reproduce this issue from time to time, and I believe it's related with linaro-media-create tools or similar.

Headline: U-Boot-Linaro is now supporting builds for the Origen board.

Acceptance: Package also providing the origen u-boot, able to run it the same way as the one provided by the LT (without regressions), and enabled by default at the Origen hwpack.
