ARM booting simplified

Fedora 21 ARM images will boot more predictably thanks to the addition of syslinux support to *u-boot*.

u-boot's use of syslinux allows pxelinux for network booting and extlinux for local booting. This allows ARM systems to boot similarly to x86 hardware, including the Fedora installation program *anaconda*, or to boot generalized images.

Configs should be manually edited for kernel updates
As noted in https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F21_bugs#ARM_issues , kernel updates do not currently add the new kernel to syslinux configuration files. After adding a new kernel package, you should edit */boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf* to boot the new kernel.
