Hi,

I just want to mention something about those unconditional changes in code:
most of this code is either test code which will get removed or
'conditionaled' in the future or it (referring to system-dm320.c) resets
values to it's default value i.e. TIMER0 and TIMER1, IRQ's priorities, etc..
TIMER0 and TIMER1 are set up as tick task and as normal timer, so the change
in system-dm320.c shouldn't do anything harmful.
Most other changes are related like this one so I think not really much
affects the mrobe500 port (apart from maybe the DSP changes, which are again
test code; especially since Catalin now figured out how to get audio on the
DSP so it is more or less obsolete)

And of course the usb.c changes shouldn't be there (//#ifdef BOOTLOADER), as
they are (again) test code.

So for the big picture, I believe most ZVM-specific code is ready for
committing (especially the tools/scramble code).
