I'm not sure how safe this is. The original reason for the
CONFIG_KERNEL_XZ hack in the makefile was because the kernel headers
couldn't be included directly. The bootwrapper is compiled with a
32bit toolchain when the kernel is compiled for 64bit big endian
because of older systems with broken firmware that can't load 64bit
ELFs directly. When I added XZ support to the wrapper I did experiment
with including the kernel headers directly and couldn't make it work
reliably. I don't remember what the exact reason was, but I think it
was something to do with the generated headers not always matching
what you would expect when compiling for 32bit. It's also possible I
was just being paranoid. Either way it's about time we found a real
fix...

The stuff in serial.c and ppc_asm.h was added later to work around
other issues without anyone thinking too hard about it. Oh well.

I'm not sure why it's there either. The boot wrapper was re-written at
some point so it might just be a hold over from the dawn of time.
