Still need to figure out what exactly is going wrong there. But it'sWondering why we could'nt move to denx.com u-boot SPL instead of using
definitely the MLO code that's broken, not the boot rom.
maintaining x-loader, but it was always a fork of u-boot and with SPL
we've eliminated that fork. Thanks Nishanth for highlighting this.
manage to get the OMAP3 x-loader also based on it. I honestly don't
Just tried to compile u-boot with SPL and it is 329K which is greater than
the 128K limit for beagleboard (OMAP3/DM37x). So we have to use MLO+u-boot.
I tried building u-boot and SPL for beagle using recent mainline code.
Here are the results:
SPL(MLO): 43828 bytes
u-boot.bin: 329992 bytes - this seems to be what you have reported.
If I add my Thumb patches and enable Thumb for Beagle:
SPL: 32420 bytes
u-boot.bin: 248168 bytes
AFAIK, standard u-boot had never been less than 128 KB in the recent
past. SPL will never be as big as 128K. Is there a confusion here? And
what is the 128K limitation based on?
Oups, did only watch on u-boot.bin, not u-boot-spl.bin sorry. I thought we get
only one file and save 1 stage but it does not.
128K limitation is due to ROM boot loader of OMAP3/DM37x SoC.
What is the difference between SPL and MLO? Is it just an include of
x-loader/MLO in u-boot? Maybe some improvments?
