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).
