    7 This was the evaluation board from Freescale.  It is also known as the Ice Cube.  Its design appears to have been used largely unchanged by multiple board vendors.  There is a lot of information on the WWW for this board.  The information on this page was based upon using an EP5200C clone of this board and is untested on the real 5200 Lite but should apply.

     34BIGGER WARNING: Some revisions on the Freescale MPC5200LITE board have a bug in U-Boot which results in the "'bdinfo" structure passed to RTEMS reporting the incorrect starting address for Flash.  The gen5200 BSP detects this and corrects it.  This was reported to Freescale in July 2007 and they claimed it would be fixed in future boards.  What this means to boards in the field is unknown.  My conclusion is that there is some reasonable probability that others will continue to have U-Boot images with this bug so I am leaving the correction in the BSP.
