But the memory mapo is  NOT  independent  of  the  architecture.  For
example,  on  PowerPC U-Boot will relocate itself always to the upper
end of available RAM, auto-adjusting to different RAM sizes. For  ARM
or  MIPS  this  is  not  the  case,  there  it  will reside at a pre-
determined fixed address.

Since you are on ARM and MIPS, you just have to look up the used
address ranges in your memory map.

I wish Captain Vimes were here. He wouldn't have  known  what  to  do
either, but he's got a much better vocabulary to be baffled in.
