II. NAND partition table

	All the board support boot from NAND flash will use the following NAND
	partition table

		0x00000000 - 0x0003FFFF	bootstrap	(256 KiB)
		0x00040000 - 0x000BFFFF u-boot		(512 KiB)
		0x000C0000 - 0x000FFFFF env		(256 KiB)
		0x00100000 - 0x0013FFFF env_redundant	(256 KiB)
		0x00140000 - 0x0017FFFF spare		(256 KiB)
		0x00180000 - 0x001FFFFF dtb		(512 KiB)
		0x00200000 - 0x007FFFFF kernel		(6 MiB)
		0x00800000 - 0xxxxxxxxx rootfs		(All left)

III. Watchdog support
167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174

	For security reasons, the at91 watchdog is running at boot time and,
	if deactivated, cannot be used anymore.
	If you want to use the watchdog, you will need to keep it running in
	your code (make sure not to disable it in AT91Bootstrap for instance).

	In the U-Boot configuration, the AT91 watchdog support is enabled using
	the CONFIG_AT91SAM9_WATCHDOG and CONFIG_HW_WATCHDOG options.
