Hello all,

Please pardon the newbie question, but I was wondering what a kernel in general expects a monitor program/bootloader like YAMON to do for it beforehand, if anything at all. I know the answer is very board specific, but if there are any generic things that a kernel expects ready for it before it starts running (caches initialized already? SDRAM control regs set up? Or maybe the kernel has no expectations at all?), I'd be grateful if someone could point them out.

TIA,
-S.
