As I said, I won't be applying any patches to at91 tree unless someone 
helps with the testing below. SPL for this board has nothing to do with 
my request.

These also have to be removed:

+#define CONFIG_SYS_SDRAM_BASE		0x20000000
+#define CONFIG_SYS_SDRAM_SIZE		0x20000000

as they are forbidden to set in the config file and appear to be unused
