aaah, I'm blind !

I've added a line at the end of am33xx_config_sdram() that's
exactly the same as the one a couple of lines before.
I was so happy to have solved my problem that I've no more
double checked if the register was already configured somewhere else.

So, now I've also defined regs->zq_config in my lowlevel.c and everything works.

The datasheet says:

The CONTROL_EMIF_SDRAM_CONFIG register exports SDRAM configuration information
to the EMIF after resuming from low power scenarios.
This register should be loaded with the same value as SDRAM_CONFIG during DDR
initialization.

so I think we should initialize it unconditionally, not only if 
!regs->zq_config.
Doing this it should be the same which one we use in am335x_sdram_size() to
compute the sdram size even if I would prefer to use 
AM33XX_EMIF4_0_REG(SDRAM_CONFIG)
for clarity.
