[parisc-linux] C360 shellprompt

Just so you all know, we get to a shell prompt on the C360 after the
changes which I'm about to commit (blame slow dialup lines).  I would
like to know whether we get to a prompt on other PA2.0 machines as well.

When testing, please keep in mind most "kernel doesn't print anytihng"
problems are problems in the .config rather than kernel bugs.  Start
with the defconfig and modify as little as possible.  Also, the most
likely cause for non-reproducible failures is page colouring problems
so try 3-4 times.

Anyway, on Lasi-based machines such as the C360 you should be able to
do anything you can do on the 712 right now (-ls, fork() but not exec(),
rebooting the machine with SysRq-B), just a lot faster.
