P1022, problems running u-boot out of RAM

We have a new P1022 board, and we would like to run u-boot out of ram (DDR) to

debug the flash subsystem.  We're using QorIQ-SDK-V1.6 to build.


I've followed the document in doc/README.ramboot.ramboot-ppc85xx, so

I've got a u-boot.bin linked what seems to be the right way, but I'm having

troouble getting it to run.  I can load it into ram with CW + USB Tap,

and start and step through the code, but it won't run far.


The primary problem is I'm uncertain of the entry point.  When I start

at _start_e500 the init process seems to overwrite the MMU and LAW

buffers supporting access to DDR, and things stop.  Similar problems

starting at _start_cont.  If I setup stack and start from board_init_f, the

there are things not configured, i.e. global data.


Is there a good way to do this without modifying too much code?


Thanks in Advance,
