That might be an interesting idea. Currently we might have use for the U-Boot console in this image, so if it works with U-Boot, the additional subsecond delay to boot it would be worth it. > > > Turns out the problem is the same: bridges into FPGA get disabled.

I don't quite understand this question though. Sorry for being unclear. What I meant was that arch_early_init_r() in misc_gen5.c (called from U-Boot) does similar things that SPL has already done in board_init_f().

But do you really need any > of that ? See above about using TFTP in SPL . As I don't know if TFTP in SPL is an option for us, I'll check if I can relocate env_addr in gd.
