Ummm... I disagree.

This  attachment  is  unreadable.  Never  post  prorpietary  document
formats, especially when it's just a waste of bandwith like here: you
could have copy & pasted the text directly.

Attachment ignored.

It works fine for everybody else.

It would have helped if you had at least given the complete command.

This is why I think you did not use a recent version of  U-Boot.  You
should use top-of-tree in CVS instead.

Maybe. But this requires you  to  provide  enough  information  in  a
readable format (plain text only).
