I didn't deem it, either.

Well, although DW use CFI-compliant flash, it still
work with a board-specific one at least in CVS. I 
once used CFI driver on DW but failed.

If so, U-Boot and PlanetCore can share one ENV to
work??? IMHO, ENV in EEPROM of PlanetCore use 
it's own definition keyword. Only to change
ENV of U-Boot can meet the requirement of 
PlanetCore. It will decrease u-boot ENV variability.

If used EEPROM for ENV home, could we need to set 

Actually, I am worring about one thing if we wanted
to combine CW nad DW port. That's how to deal with
HIGH boot mode[DW] and LOW boot mode[CW] in one image.

The "possible" I used was really a draft idea. Don't
take it seriously. To me, it isn't worthwhile to 
implement it. CW is too old to be popular nowdays.
Take a look at it's main page if avaiable. 


In one word, you fix on RPXlite is a treasure. Just
stop and keep that. Those who are interested on 
RPXlite[C/DW] can get enough hints from exist
port work in CVS.

Thanks for your time,
