Hall-only Commutation

It is possible to use the Aries with a motor that only has Hall Effects and no encoder. The drive is now a trap-drive and not a sinusoidal drive as it is when using an encoder.

To set it up, OHALL must equal 1 for Hall-only trapezoidal commutation. If you're not using an encoder at all, then be sure to set SFB to 2.
