Hi all,
I would like to have your views on how U-boot is used in production.

We will have Boards that has U-boot as the bootloader. U-boot will be burned in flash by means of JTAG.
Later the boards will be put in a subrack for parallel SW download and Flashing.

Now what I am thinking of is to program U-boot to recognize a pin in the backplane, if the pin is set
the board is in a production facility - BOOTP and a TFTP download of the flash image shall be done, and burned in flash ( by U-boot ). The pin is set by production staff.

If it is not set U-boot shall start a Image from flash ( Containing Linux and a Rootfile system ) since it is in a "sharp" environment.

Any other ideas?

Cheers // Matias
