The attached patch adds a "WARNING" note to MOTLoad-equipped BSPs'
READMEs  that a "waitProbe", "netShut" must be performed before RTEMS
If this isn't done, MOTLoad's installed interrupt handlers for network
interfaces will continue to be triggered and cause memory corruption.
The "waitProbe" will add a delay to ensure that devices have been
detected; otherwise the "netShut" may be performed before all the
interfaces are detected and there's a race between their detection +
interrupt handler installation and the user-image boot.
I've already added a note to the same effect to these boards' Wiki
Thanks to Sebastian Huber for helping me correct an earlier
mis-diagnosis of the issue and Till Straumann for checking it.
If there're no objections I'd like to send out a message to rtems-users@
pointing to the warnings once they're committed...?
 I modified those for the Beatnik, MVME3100 and MVME5500 BSPs. Did I
