LetuxOS U-Boot

Issue 788: Use recommended environment names for fdt_addr_r etc.

Reported by Nikolaus Schaller, Feb 18, 2017

Recommended by Josua Meyer:

U-Boot has a standard for this which is documented as part of their 
Distro Boot Script.
Please see doc/README.distro: section U-Boot Implementation

They should be:
fdt_addr_r, kernel_addr_r, ramdisk_addr_r, scriptaddr
We do not need to set pxefile_addr_r as we do not have meaningful 
networking within u-boot.

mainline implemented this for omap_beagle in:

commit c721fd6ee01cca436176a820a741a95e038108ba
Author: Guillaume GARDET <guillaume.gardet@free.fr>

    omap3_beagle: use config_distro_bootcmd
    Add support for distro_bootcmd on MMC and fall back to prior
    behavior if distro_bootcmd fails.
    Tested on Beagleboad xM to boot GRUB2 (and then Linux kernel) in 
EFI mode
    from MMC.
