SubjectRe: [PATCH] ARM: socfpga: fix base address of SDR controller
+ Marek (as I really want to keep the dts in Linux and U-Boot in sync)

You don't see it in U-Boot as I'm working on a patch for that.
As I wrote in the commit message, U-Boot currently does not use the
devicetree for the SDR driver, but I want to convert it to do that.

But before converting, I need to find a clean way to provide the
register addresses to the driver. That doesn't work with the current dts.

Well, in [2], you see that the peripheral's address range actually starts
at 0xffc20000. It's only the public documented registers that start at
0xffc25000. I don't know why the lower address range is undocumented.
Maybe you can help me here?

But U-Boot needs to use the undocumented registers to bring up the DDR-RAM.
Even if the registers for that are not (clearly?) documented, I think the
devicetree should still reflect the correct address range.

The U-Boot driver is made up of 2 files (in drivers/ddr/altera):
- sdram_gen5.c [3]: using the documented registers from 0xffc25000
- sequencer.c [4]: using the (undocumented?) registers from 0xffc20000

In both files, you can see the register addresses they use by checking the
static variables at the top of the file. And for convenience, use [5] to
search for the values of defines.
