			   LYNX KDI SUPPORT

		    Last Update: July 20, 2003
=======================================================================

This file describes support for LynuxWorks KDI within U-Boot. Support
is enabled by defining CONFIG_LYNXKDI.


LYNXOS AND BLUECAT SUPPORTED
============================
Both LynxOS and BlueCat linux KDIs are supported. The implementation
automatically detects which is being booted. When you use mkimage
you should specify "lynxos" for both (see target-specific notes).


SUPPORTED ARCHITECTURE/TARGETS
==============================
The following targets have been tested:

-PowerPC  MPC8260ADS


FILES TO LOOK AT
================
include/lynxkdi.h    -defines a simple struct passed to a kdi.
common/lynxkdi.c     -implements the call to the kdi.
common/cmd_bootm.c   -top-level command implementation ("bootm").


====================================================================
TARGET SPECIFIC NOTES
====================================================================

MPC8260ADS
===========
The default LynxOS and BlueCat implementations require some
modifications to the config file.

Edit include/configs/MPC8260ADS.h to use the following:

42 43 44
#define CONFIG_SYS_IMMR	0xFA200000
#define CONFIG_SYS_BCSR	0xFA100000
#define CONFIG_SYS_BR1_PRELIM	0xFA101801
45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57

When creating a LynxOS or BlueCat u-boot image using mkimage,
you must specify the following:

Both:    -A ppc -O lynxos -T kernel -C none
LynxOS:  -a 0x00004000 -e 0x00004020
BlueCat: -a 0x00500000 -e 0x00507000

To pass the MAC address to BlueCat you should define the
"fcc2_ether_addr" parameter in the "bootargs" environment
variable. E.g.:

==> setenv bootargs fcc2_ether_addr=00:11:22:33:44:55:66
