It's implemented partially in FSO for a long time. Every time the GPS
is turned off, the important data is saved to the file and loaded
after turning on the next time. The problem is that sometimes loading
ephemeris really hurts time-to-fix. That's why this code is commented
out in FSO.

If anyone has any ideas, suggestions or _experience_with_loading_
ephemeris_, please contribute to
http://trac.freesmartphone.org/ticket/261 (especially, if you're not
using FSO, as it might help to find why FSO implementation doesn't
work as expected).
