Hi Ajay,

This is very good information, I have some issue with my board during
porting.
All things are same bet old and new board except clock frequency, still
my reboot (warm reset) is not working ? ANy idea ?

Ajay> Are you calling mips_reboot_setup() in your plat_mem_setup()? You
may have to modify/add code to mips_reboot_setup() specific to your
board.

Is this due to boot stramp or NAND Flash mapped to other address ?

Ajay> I don't think that can be the issue.

Ajay> Also please mail to the list so that others can also see your
queries and suggest better answers.

Ajay.

Thanks
