I obviously meant architectures setting up the address, not the board
code, as this has nothing at all to do with boards. There are already
plenty of cases in setup_arch() for filling in uclinux mtd data, one more
isn't going to make a difference.

I don't see anything wrong with keeping uclinux_ram_map as a global
however, particularly since platforms that need to special case the
mapping can easily do this under the existing ifdef. Adding weak symbols
for something like this just seems silly.
