[U-Boot-Users] Submitting AT91SAM9261EK board

Hi Wolfgang,

Sorry to bother you once again, but I wonder on which branch I have to
submit some patches...

Concerning NAND development, you told me to use testing-NAND git branch. No
problem with that.

But do I have to submit every AT91SAM9261 patches (board, lcd, usb...)
against that branch or only the NAND part? If I submit everything against
testing-NAND branch, will it be included in a future u-boot-1.1.5 release,
for example?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

Do you really think  this  is  needed?  I  think  that  the  existing
dataflash  implementation  (for  the AT91RM9200) does not require any
NOR flash either, and it does not need to do this.

If things are interdependent on such a level it's  probably  best  to
fix  this  first and then submit everything again, telling me to drop
the previous set of patches.

But then, your patches should not be dependent on each other in  such
a way in the first place.
