Fix previous error a patch should be at patchqueue, also is attached.

u-boot source code provides a parameter definition for a hardware reference
documented at [1]; Even trying to replicating this hardware project it would
not necessary
match the hardware address model used by u-boot so is safer to overwrite
this header file (xparameters.h);
Also u-boot expects a set of macros that are not generated whit xilinx
tools, and I append them
at the end of the header file, I know this is ugly but there's no way to
provide a patch since the
header file is generated based on the hardware modules included in the

This probably can be included in xilinx-bsp.bbclass but I will need to
detect when u-boot or linux-kernel
is inheriting the class to perform the right action. But at the moment I
don't know ho to do it.
