Yosemite has onboard soldered DDR SDRAM chips and in therefore not using the 
spd_sdram() code at all. This is only used by board with DIMM modules and SPD 
EEPROM's. Please note that bamboo is an exception here, since it has one bank 
onboard soldered SDRAM and two DIMM slots with SPD EEPROM. Here the SPD 
information for the first onboard SDRAM bank is emulated.

None. Use (a) the spd_sdram() code (probably with modifications) for DIMM 
modules, or use (b) code like in yosemite.c with fixed init values (possibly 
with the tr1 calculation) for onboard soldered chips.
