U-Boot for Freescale i.MX5x

This file contains information for the port of U-Boot to the Freescale
i.MX5x SoCs.

1. CONFIGURATION OPTIONS/SETTINGS
---------------------------------

1.1 CONFIG_MX51_PLL_ERRATA: Workaround for i.MX51 PLL errata.
    This option should be enabled by all boards using the i.MX51 silicon
    version up until (including) 3.0 running at 800MHz.
    The PLL's in the i.MX51 processor can go out of lock due to a metastable
    condition in an analog flip-flop when used at high frequencies.
    This workaround implements an undocumented feature in the PLL (dither
    mode), which causes the effect of this failure to be much lower (in terms
    of frequency deviation), avoiding system failure, or at least decreasing
    the likelihood of system failure.

1.2 CONFIG_SYS_MAIN_PWR_ON: Trigger MAIN_PWR_ON upon startup.
    This option should be enabled for boards having a SYS_ON_OFF_CTL signal
    connected to GPIO1[23] and triggering the MAIN_PWR_ON signal like in the
    reference designs.

2. CONVENTIONS FOR FUSE ASSIGNMENTS
-----------------------------------

2.1 MAC Address: It is stored in the words 9 to 14 of fuse bank 1, using the
    natural MAC byte order (i.e. MSB first).
29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40

    This is an example how to program an example MAC address 01:23:45:67:89:ab
    into the eFuses. Assure that the programming voltage is available and then
    execute:

    => fuse prog -y 1 9 01 23 45 67 89 ab

    After programming a MAC address, consider locking the MAC fuses. This is
    done by programming the MAC_ADDR_LOCK fuse, which is bit 4 of word 0 in
    bank 1:

    => fuse prog -y 1 0 10
