This one does present in the patch from Look for

We have the Memec board running as well. With P160 COMM module though.
I've posted the patch last Friday, but it got into the bi_recs thread - my
fault (hopefully doesn't affect those not reading the archives).

Do you use EDK for your desing?
If yes, how do you get the addresses etc from you design without using xparams?
Do you use the mhs file for this?
I guess you do not use what Xilinx calls "OS independent drivers" (== HAL?)
too then.
