I noticed that "mpc55xxevb/" still uses "BSP_DEFAULT_BAUD_RATE" while the "waf" build system changed the code and configuration name to the standardized "BSP_CONSOLE_BAUD".  I didn't fix it since it's not associated with the powerpc/shared changes, but it is bit-rot.

If the old build system isn't supposed to be kept up-to-date I recommend removing it.
