board: macchiatobin: update readme.txt
Update the kernel and U-Boot versions to the actual versions in use. Update the description of supported hardware features. Add a note that the stale SPI flash environment issue only affects the vendor BSP.

There are two build options: mainline support and vendor support.
For the mainline BSP, we use:
- - Linux v4.15
- - U-Boot v2018.01

+ - U-Boot v2018.11
For the vendor BSP, we use the sources available from Marvell Github
page at https://github.com/MarvellEmbeddedProcessors, which uses:
