Well, the bad instruction is in badaddr_read, which is currently only 
needed for PCI support.   And PCI support is going to be unlikely on any 
machine that doesn't support ldrh.  So why not just include "opt_pci.h and 
wrap the entire badaddr_read function in

#if NPCI > 0

That way we don't get a dead function on other machines that don't have 
PCI either (eg on a Shark).
