Here's a good point for me to jump in, I think. There's two things to
- In the current in-tree SPL implementations the code flow is
board_init_f calls relocate_code() to clear the BSS _and_ get our jump
to board_init_r. It does not actually relocate the running U-Boot,
just clears the BSS. board_init_r is what calls the things to load
and boot the next stage (U-Boot or Linux).
- In my series this has been changed slightly to be board_init_f calls
memset and then board_init_r directly. So this patch should not be
needed once rebased on that series.
