Slave Mode on the MC68360

Hi Thomas,

It's used on a Radsone EP1A which has a Power PC MPC8245 with a QSPANII to 
provide the interface between the PCI bus and the 68360.  I pulled the
68360 console code over a few months ago, but am just getting around to 
looking at it again.  At the current time my processor is locking up
somewhere in the serial initialization, but I suspect that is a memory
map issue (my map has changed several times in the past few months).  
I just wanted to probe the list to see if anyone else  had used slave mode, to 
see if there were any hidden obstacles.
