Our bootloader already handles elf files. Must I use flat files on a
Yes. Application binaries running under Linux w/NOMMU must be flat files.
I'm not sure what this has to do with your bootloader.
There is a huge collection of CONFIG_XILINX_ macros inside the
.config file that seem to correspond to xparameters.h.
First I can not seem to kill the ones I am not using, and second
don't these really belong in a header file not .config ?
How and where do I kill them off ?
I'm not sure why you would want to "kill them off". They are part of
the auto-config approach that lets us tailor the kernel to the HW build.
Being in .config they also end up in include/linux/autoconf.h. The
reason you need them in .config not jsut xparameres.h is, among other
things, that it lets the build system reason about your HW build. Does
the CPU have a multipler instruction? This affects the CFLAGS you pass
to the kernel build. xparameters.h won't help you there.
