[U-Boot-Users] Getting Started Porting U-Boot to M5329EVB board

Hi Stefan,

Yes, I am, and that is where I've started.  I currently have got a
simple copy to compile cleanly, but none of the device-specific code has
been checked to see if it needs to be modified.

Any hints as to where I should start?  For example, I'm guessing the
serial port is rather important, right?  But do I need the interrupts
functioning to enable serial communications?  In other words, is the
serial port interrupt-driven?  I'm guessing I need to find "main",
follow the hardware initialization code, and that should point me where
I need to go...
