U-boot stops when relocation starts

Hi guys,

a month ago, I raised a question about not booting from SD card. See here.

We went further and built a bootable u-boot image by playing with defconfigs, board header definitions (ls1021atwr.h) and other stuff. Now we stops when u-boot starts relocation, i.e. just between board_f and board_r init calls. I was advised to check DDR settings, but this is not the case.
Our board is based on ls1021atwr, but does not have the CPLD. So we want to remove unneeded code. Finally we found when we remove any of 3 U_BOOT_CMD definitions from ls1021atwr.c, we are unable to continue with relocation. DDR works fine, it should be something with LD script or something else. I attached logs, u-boot map and several other files for both working and not working image. Just a single change in a single file, so maps can be compared. If someone observed similar thing, please let me know.

As u-boot 2018 moved various CONFIG symbols from .h files into Kconfig and defconfig files, we solved this question by proper moving CONFIG symbols from ls1021atwr.h into defconfig files. There are conditional implications of symbols in Kconfigs, so we also had to remove some imply lines from these files.

Another issue was to pass make also with symbols, which are finally classified as odd ones. We skipped this test in makefile.

Thank you for your quick reply.

Usually only .h file in the /include/configs folder is needed for changing for new board.

See attached files. These files are u-boot configuration files for the LS1021a-IOT, LS1021AQDS and TWR-LS1021a boards from LSDK 19.03. The LS1021a-IOT and LS1021AQDS boards do not have CPLD.

Compare u-boot configuration file for the LS1021a-IOT and LS1021AQDS boards and configuration files for the TWR-LS1021a and your LS1021a boards.


Have a great day,
Pavel Chubakov
