Hi everybody
and especially developers of i.MX31 NAND boot patches,

I wrote an e-mail yesterday asking about the need of the mx31_nand.c file in drivers/mtd/nand/ folder. Since nobody answerd I tried to review the development of the latest patch "[PATCH v4 0/6] MX31: NAND boot for PDK boards." historically. It's probably a stupid question but for me as a u-boot newbe it would be very helpful.

I started in August 2008 where I found the first patch called "[PATCH RFC 0/5] Add NAND Support..." and later two patches with the same title and the prefix [PATCH v2 0/6] and [PATCH v3 0/6] from Magnus Lilja.
In October Mr. Assis posted a patch regarding to this topic aswell.
In December and January Maxim Artamonov postet a patches to introduce NAND SPL support.
In April then another series of patches from Magnus Lilja were posted with the title "[RFC 0/5] MX31: NAND boot for phyCORE and PDK boards." I think based on this in April version 2 and and in June now version 3 and 4 were posted by Magnus Lilja.

As I can see the latest patch includes all the necessary code from the previous patches. So no other patch has to be applied to boot u-boot from a NAND Flash on a board with the i.MX31 ?
But I had a very hard time doing this review and I'm not 100% sure if I'm correct
Would be very nice if someone could tell me if I'm right and if not tell me what I need more to boot from a NAND flash.

Thank you very mutch,
Ulrich Gerster
