Hi Ming,
   If your Xilinx EDK generates the xparameters_ml300.h file for the
ML403 board then it has been configured with the right parameters and
address required by Linux. Don't look at the existing
xparameters_ml403.h file in the kernel source. It has got too many
parameters with address initializations that might not suit you at all.
I think its safe to copy the ml300.h onto ml403.h. I tried it... the
kernel compiles without any problems.
