Richard/Saul,

I was asked to pick up the languishing yocto bug #1192, which
tells us that the mpc8315 reference board was using the 
incorrect tuning.

To fix this, I created a new tune-ppce300c3, which is based on 
the tune-ppce300c2.

core-image-minimal, and core-image-sato builds have passed, as
well as boot tests. During the sato build, I had to fix flac to
not use altivec. The examples already in flac didn't seem to work,
since my tuning override wasn't working. To fix it, I added DEFAULTTUNE
to the OVERRIDES for the package and sato now builds.

I'll follow this with a pull request for the yocto reference BSP.

I'm by no means a tuning or powerpc expert, but to the best of
my knowledge, this is what we want to do. Anyone more familiar 
with the board can feel free to comment :)

Cheers,

Bruce
