Sorry for this delay. But IIRC there was interest in your patches. Only nobody 
did a review till now. I CC'ed Peter Pease, the U-Boot ARM custodian since he 
will be responsible for this inclusion.

Peter, did you find the time to take a look at the patches? I'm not sure about 
the status of TI's DaVinci support and if we really should wait for their 
support. Perhaps it's better to start with Sergey's version.

You are not being ignored. Unfortunately the U-Boot patch queue is still very 
long and it takes a lot of patience to cope with this situation. Sorry for
