i would agree if it were a board-specific issue, but it's an arch
issue, so pushing it to the boards level is wrong. i can however
replace the addr with a global weak and add a symbol into the Blackfin
arch code to override it.

the structs being global in this file is simply wrong from what i can
tell ... everything in there should be static. i'll send a patch for
that later on.
