[LinuxBIOS] Config file dependencies

1. car as ram is messed up with inline assembly, So We can check up the
auto.inc that gcc produced to verify if the inline assembly is well with
other lines from C.
2. ...., the same, except We rename some section name.

Why only cache_as_ram_auto.c

1. then will be section name conflicts to create crt0.s

2. with ROMCC, you can not put these info in reg, it may need 4K bytes.
Also for support new CPU or sync different CPU freq to common freq, I
need to separate HT freq optimization with coherent_ht and ht_chain. So
need to store all link info for optimization later.......

AFIAK, the way you are using USE_INIT is totally different from what 
Greg is doing on PPC. I am not an expert on this issue but I believe
the only common thing in these two is the same macro name. Greg, can
you have some comment on this?

Why do you do that? Why don't you have cache_as_ram_failover.c too?

Any reason it has to be in cache_as_ram_auto only?
