[U-Boot-Users] (no subject)

I am having a problem in board.c. I realize the problem is probobly a
configuration error, and would appreciate help from those most
experienced in identifying the cause. 

I am having a problem in board_init(...) in ./lib_ppc/board.c (see
except below). The problem seems to be the result of incorrect
__u_boot_cmd_start and __u_boot_cmd_end values. You see,
__u_boot_cmd_end - __u_boot_cmd_start = 0xFF01C118-0xFFff01B838 = 0x8E0
= 2272. 

[cmdtp++] is preforming [cmdtp = cmdtp + 24] (as you know, cmdtp is a
pointer of type cmd_tbl_t). However, 2272 is not divisible by 24. Thus
in "for (cmdtp = &__u_boot_cmd_start; cmdtp !=  &__u_boot_cmd_end;
cmdtp++)," [cmdtp !=  &__u_boot_cmd_end] will always be true; cmdtp will
never equal &__u_boot_cmd_end. So, &__u_boot_cmd_end is jumped over and
cmdtp continues until it exceeds the DRAM boundary (64MB or 0x03FFFFFF)
and results in an error

U-boot is runing from RAM at this point. It had been coppied to
0x03FDF000. so __u_boot_cmd_end actually = 0x03FFb118 and
__u_boot_cmd_start actually = 0x03FFa838. 

Thanks for your help,
