Move it to the top-level or the documentation?

The motorola_powerpc bootloader is looks like it is linking in some fake rom code and in the autoconf build system that is conditional on it being a qemu build.

Any objections to removing this now? :)

The RTEMS kernel recipe is still broken but that's about the end of it.
