RE: [microblaze-uclinux] CFI Flash on 8bit bus?
Those of us using 16-bit wide FLASH have had to use some modifications to
the actual HDL code for the EMC core. These mods were originally written by
Steve Sanders. I wonder if you're in the same boat and might need to follow
Steve's example, in order to make the EMC core compatible with your FLASH.
