Dear Robin,

What do you mean with "should" here? Is this what  you  think  should
happen? Maybe your expectations do not match the reality given by the
current implementation / configuration.

These defines are used all fine, as long as your configuration  makes
sense (as demonstrated by the 100+ existing board configurations).

Try to  understand  what  the  image  should  look  like,  where  the
environment  is located, and which #defines are used to configure the
environment to that location.
