This release is for Rev. P of the u-boot source code patch. It is based on the u-boot v2008.10 official release.
The following boards are supported:
This release includes these changes:
Adds support for bitsyxb, sphere, turboxb, and vgx. Previously,
these boards were supported in older revisions of u-boot but not
ones based on v2008.10.
Adds support for booting zImage files. This feature was supported
in older revisions of u-boot but due to changes in the v2008.10
baseline, is only now being reimplemented. Prior to this change,
the kernel would only be loaded from a uImage file.
Adds support for obtaining an IP address from DHCP when utilizing
Ethernet, i.e. loading files via tftp.
Adds support for booting from usb on gcm. With this addition, the
bistyxb, gcm, sphere and turboxb can all boot from usb with this
release. There are no plans to add this capability to vgx. Prior
to this change, the gcm could only load files from on-board flash,
mmc, and Ethernet.
Fixes 'mapadd' command so optional 'guard' argument may be set as
BitsyXb/GCM/Sphere/TurboXb/VGX 64M bootloader (ZIP ~109kB)
