The patch (which has NOT been tested with the latest u-boot version, but 
should work anyway)
can be downloaded from the public section of our web site:


any comment is welcome, of course! :-)

It should be ported with easy to different architecture (thanks to u-boot 
structure :-),
but you will need to adapt your WinCE OAL to support all the stuff (like 
command line).
This code (OAL dependent) is abstracted into a function (called 
that should be placed inside your board's source code.
It is architecture dependent only for PHYS_SDRAM_1 definition (my .bin file 
has the wrong physical offset...)
The code is preatty lame, so feel free to change it (and, of course, tell 
me your opinion about it!)

It has been tested with our ARM9 module (Cirrus EP9315 based) and WCE 5.0.
