CONFIG_SYS_ARM_WITHOUT_RELOC: document feature removal

Signed-off-by: 's avatarWolfgang Denk <>

The following is a list of files and features that are going to be
removed from the U-Boot source tree. Every entry should contain what
exactly is going away, when it will be gone, why it is being removed,
and who is going to be doing the work. When the feature is removed
and who is going to be doing the work. When the feature is removed
from U-Boot, its corresponding entry should also be removed from this
When: After Release 2011.03
Why: The implementation of U-Boot for the ARM architecture has
been reworked to support relocation. This allows to
efficiently use the same U-Boot binary image on systems with
different RAM sizes, and brings the implementation much more
in line with the code used for example on Power Architecture
systems (eventually allowing to merge into common code). This
seems especailly interesting now that ARM is getting Device
Tree support as well.
All ARM boards need to be adapted to this new code, which
requires testing on the actual hardware, so this is a task
for the respective board maintainers or other users.
Please see the commit message of commit f1d2b31 for details:;a=commit;h=f1d2b31
Support for CONFIG_SYS_ARM_WITHOUT_RELOC will be removed
after release v2011.03; all boards that have not been
converted by then, i. e. that are still broken then, are
considered unmaintained and without interest for the
community and will be removed as well.
