I wanted to define the flash partition map in the kernel command line.
I want to do this with reference to other u-boot environment variables,
which contain the start addresses and sizes for each partition (just

I found that if the "bootargs" environment variable contained macros, they

No worries - I will do that, except I don't know what they are. Where are
the rules defined? If you can give me a link I will study them before I
submit any more patches.

Note that a search of the mailing list archive using "patch submission
guidelines" as the keywords (which I did after reading your next email)
returned only one reference - your next email (i.e. I spent some time
hunting around for them, but couldn't find them). Cheers!
