Please note that the development of PPCBoot has been discontinued.
The code is frozen, and we don;t intend to add any new stuff any
more. Development continues under the new project name U-Boot

But except for the name everything is more or less the same.

You should not try to add this function as is to U-Boot. Instead, add
the incomation contained in it (like initial values for special
registers, UPM tables and RAM init sequence) to your new board config
file (include/configs/viper.h) resp. your new board dependend C code
