arm: spl: Allow board_init_r() to run with a larger stack
At present SPL uses a single stack, either CONFIG_SPL_STACK or CONFIG_SYS_INIT_SP_ADDR. Since some SPL features (such as MMC and environment) require a lot of stack, some boards set CONFIG_SPL_STACK to point into SDRAM. They then set up SDRAM very early, before board_init_f(), so that the larger stack can be used. This is an abuse of lowlevel_init(). That function should only be used for essential start-up code which cannot be delayed. An example of a valid use is when only part of the SPL code is visible/executable, and the SoC must be set up so that board_init_f() can be reached. It should not be used for SDRAM init, console init, etc. Add a CONFIG_SPL_STACK_R option, which allows the stack to be moved to a new address before board_init_r() is called in SPL. The expected SPL flow (for CONFIG_SPL_FRAMEWORK) is documented in the README.

+ bool "Enable SDRAM location for SPL stack"
+ SPL starts off execution in SRAM and thus typically has only a small
+ stack available. Since SPL sets up DRAM while in its board_init_f()
+ function, it is possible for the stack to move there before
+ board_init_r() is reached. This option enables a special SDRAM
+ location for the SPL stack. U-Boot SPL switches to this after
+ board_init_f() completes, and before board_init_r() starts.
