This series adds some documentation to the system manual for
previously undocumented Arm board types.

The first 3 patches are very minimalist documentation of the
canon-a1000, collie and gumstix board families.  The info was
obtained by looking at source code comments, a brief scan of what
kinds of devices the code was creating, and sometimes the cover
letter for the patch series that added the board. The level
of documentation here doesn't seem fantastically useful but
on the other hand it's no worse than that we have for some
existing boards (eg cheetah) and it would be nice to eventually
get to complete coverage of all the arm board types. But
I figured some feedback on whether this level of documentation
was worth doing was worthwhile before I tried to add it for
any of the other board types.

Finally, patch 4 is more meaty: it documents the "virt" board
(which was a pretty embarrassing omission from the docs given
that it is the standard board type that we recommend for
Arm guests these days). I have attempted to fold in the info
on the board from https://wiki.qemu.org/Documentation/Platforms/ARM
where appropriate.
