Be careful. User the default values as defined in U-Boot  and  Linux,
and DON'T change these unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing.

This cannot work. Please leave the mapping as defined by U-Boot and Linux.

You seem to modify a lot of stuff without konwing exactly why - don;t
do this. The default values are there for a reason - they  are  known
to work.
