I can't remember if I did a full test on all platforms when I wrote this 
patch. Probably not.

And I have no idea what is causing this, nor do I currently have the 
time to have a closer look, sorry.

BTW, this is a very good example for what I said earlier:

"I failed to do upstreaming work for U-Boot for quite some time. Mainly 
because whenever I try to, I end up fixing/cleaning some weird U-Boot 
code/behavior and spending way more time than I actually have available."
