New write-up of procedure for SPI FLASH recovery on XO-1.5


Includes a training video.

XO-1 recovery was difficult because of the special components needed.

XO-1.5 recovery is greatly simplified by (a) support in OpenFirmware for
programming a chip attached to an I/O port dedicated for the purpose,
and (b) the large 2.54mm pitch footprints for attaching one laptop to
another for hosted reflashing.

Some Wiki pages moved to enable laptop model specific instructions.
