I checked all my commit files and fixed all the coding style violations
as far as my understand :-). Sorry for some garbage codes :-).

Do you mean testdram () function? I can see this function in many other
boards. memtest command can do dram test. While I still think ,this
function can  benefit end users when testing or debugging.

I will add necessary comments.

I will consider to add a ifdef here.

	the bus clock can be configured by external switch, just as the
mpc7448hpc2 board

	the bus clock is a fixed one.

I will add comments here.

Fixed as far as I can see :-).

00:06:D2 is officially assigned to Tundra :-).

Can you make sure all of these define are not necessary? I can see them
in many other board.

I need to deal with exception after the code relocation. I need add the
gd->reloc_off to search the exception table. 
If I do not find better method for this, I will add a detailed comment

> Please clean up and resubmit.
I have cleaned most of the code, after a testing. I will resubmit them
hopefully the early next week.
Thanks for your effort to review my code :-).
