2017-09-14meta-yocto: Restructure and tidy up READMEsRichard Purdie1-424/+1
The YP Compat v2 standard requres a more specific README structure. Bring meta-yocto to the required standard and clean up some of the data in the READMEs whilst in there. Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
2017-06-09README.hardware: update flashing instructions for MPC8315Ed Bartosh1-10/+5
Using 1000000 memory address for kernel and a00000 for dtb can cause kernel image to overwrite dtb when uncompressing and u-boot crashing with: ERROR: image is not a fdt - must RESET the board to recover. Updated flashing instructions for the board to use addresses 1000000 and 2000000 to avoid this error. Got rid of resetting loadaddr and ftdaddr u-boot variables.
