Whiteboard

[rsalveti, Nov 28, 2011] Just make sure we have enough tests to cover all the additional features we have at the current u-boot-linaro tree. Also make sure to try fix the cache issue with omap3 and 4 (as you said the patch seems to be posted at the m-l already).
[jcrigby, Dec 19, 2011] DCACHE still needs to be disabled for USB. Upstream v2011.12 is delayed until Dec 23 so release is based on -rc1.
[jcrigby, Dec 19, 2011] OMAP3 Beagle now works thanks to rsalveti. USB SPL still broken. Testing still needed on mx.
[gruemaster, Jan 16, 2012] Will these changes make a release soon? Documentation? usbboot package for usb host system? Hard to consider this implemented if it isn't available for use.

Meta:
Headline: u-boot-linaro is now based on the latest upstream release v2011.12
Acceptance: works on supported platforms
