[U-Boot-Users] [PATCH] Update OMAP242x for git head (plus sign).

Yes indeed I duplicated cfi_flash.c.  The changes in my previous patch
to CFI were rejected.  You indicated see the previous list mail on the
subject.  Your assertion at that time was to put things into the board
specific files was one way to go.

The patch I had at that time was ifdef'ed just for my board in CFI and
for the flash part I'm using would seem to show errors.  I think those
OMAP specific ifdef's may fix errors, but I being its such a highly
coupled driver it is very difficult to add in changes with out breaking
a lot of boards.  How do you suggest real integration into that driver?
The 1% changes are minor and isolated now and that's not acceptable what

I certainly can break the patch into parts, but they are all coupled.
The chip and board are very new have went though flux and this results
in large patches at this time.  This is not a PPC821 which shouldn't
have a lot of change.

Best Regards,
Richard Woodruff
