I too had high hopes when I heard an LSP for the ML40x was imminent, I
nabbed it and was disappointed to find that their drivers still only
support relatively old versions of the Xilinx IP.  It would seem that
they are still creating the design they ported to with EDK/ISE v7.2
rather than the newer 8.1 or 8.2 with updated IP libraries.  This is
from the xparameters_ml40x.h file they distribute.
