README.hardware: update MPC8315E-RDB instructions
Update the instructions for setting up the MPC8315E-RDB so that they are clearer, use correct filenames, match the other board instructions more closely, and include a note about dealing with non-default MAC addresses. Additionally, add a note about ordering MPC8315E-RDBA. Signed-off-by: Paul Eggleton <paul.eggleton@linux.intel.com>

242(Note: you may find it easier to order MPC8315E-RDBA; this appears to be the

247* tftp server installed on your workstation 251* TFTP server installed on your workstation

254* Ethernet connected to the first ethernet port on the board

257
258Note: if you have altered your board's ethernet MAC address(es) from the
259defaults, or you need to do so because you want multiple boards on the same
260network, then you will need to change the values in the dts file (patch
261linux/arch/powerpc/boot/dts/mpc8315erdb.dts within the kernel source). If
262you have left them at the factory default then you shouldn't need to do
263anything here.

249Load the kernel and boot it as follows: 265--- Booting from NFS root ---
266
267Load the kernel and dtb (device tree blob), and boot the system as follows:
268
269 1. Get the kernel (uImage-mpc8315e-rdb.bin) and dtb (uImage-mpc8315e-rdb.dtb)
270 files from the Poky build tmp/deploy directory, and make them available on
271 your TFTP server.
272
273 2. Connect the board's first serial port to your workstation and then start up
274 your favourite serial terminal so that you will be able to interact with
275 the serial console. If you don't have a favourite, picocom is suggested:
276
277 $ picocom /dev/ttyUSB0 -b 115200
250 278
251 1. Get the kernel (uImage.mpc8315erdb) and dtb (mpc8315erdb.dtb) files from 279 3. Power up or reset the board and press a key on the terminal when prompted
252 the Poky build tmp/deploy directory, and make them available on your tftp 280 to get to the U-Boot command line
253 server.
