printf() is used in the ethernet driver. I just built several 68k
BSPs, and they all had similarly sized minimum and hello samples.

On the CSB337 BSP, the BSS section is somewhat larger than
necessary. There's a copy of the translation table for the MMU. This
could go in readonly memory, since it's not modified. That would save
at least 16K in RAM.

Also, there's some remnants of an instruction abort handler that
shouldn't be there. I thought I had sent a patch to remove it, but
maybe not. (I'll create it again and submit it soon.) That will save
another 4K+.
