I'm personally getting a little tired of seeing all of the responses saying
that it isn't possible to bring u-boot up in RAM.  I brought up to new
PXA255 boards that had dead flash on the first rev board.  It is necessary
to set up the init so that it doesn't run the ram initialization when
running from ram, but it is possible.  Granted, you do have to know what you
are doing, but if you have brand new hardware you had better or you'll never
get it running.
