I just wanted to say thanks for the great software.  I had been using
rrload on my omap1510 innovator board.  Yesterday, I got u-boot 1.1.2
compiled, loading, running, and flashed on the board - and I'm
very happy!  It's nice to have a more full-featured bootloader for
my development work.  Networking worked, as did all serial, memory
and flash operations that I tested.

I had to change one CFLAG in cpu/arm925t/config.mk:
I changed -mshort-load-bytes to -malignment-traps, to support
my gcc 3.4.3 compiler.

A patch similar to this was submitted previously and rejected,
because it breaks older compilers.  I'm only including it here
for others who may care. (This is not a request for integration.)

I notice that there's no doc/README.omap1510inn.  I'd be willing
to write one if no one else is already working on one (although I'm
not an expert by any means.)

Thanks again for u-boot!
