[LinuxBIOS] Merge complete....

OK. Maybe I'm the only one confused but why should the hard_reset called
from hardwaremain in C really do a soft reset.  Wouldn't it be better to
call it soft_reset?  Or maybe comment the code if hard_reset needs to do
a soft reset?  And your sure the cf9 port is enabled? Right?

that's right. 

in auto.c stage, the hard reset is real one it will reset pci space
and ht (freq/width).
the soft reset will keep the ht (freq/width). the hard_reset is called
when ram init exception.

in the linuxbios_ram stage totally in c ( from hardwaremain, or the
root_reset_bus) is actually a soft reset, it will keep the ht

the problem i met is problem ck804 doesn't reconfig ht two times.
