OK.I tested with no IP_PNP,there was a 2 seconds
decrease on boot time.After setting "verify=no" to
mask CRC32 checksum,the boot time came to 11"78.Then
without IP_PNP,the boot time was 9"69.Close to my
expected 8 seconds.Yeah,there are some special option
in my .config,like framebuffer and USB HOST mode

I tried to optimize minimum access times for SDRAM in
U-Boot,almost no obvious improvement.I need time to
optimize SDRAM and FLASH access times.I took
Wolfgang's example to use uncompressed kernel and

Thanks a lot for your help.
