4.14.4. Writing a Predefined Data Pattern to SDRAM in the Preloader

You can include your own code to write a predefined data pattern to the SDRAM in the preloader for debugging purposes.
Include your code in the file: <project_folder>\software\spl_bsp\uboot-socfpga\arch\arm\cpu\armv7\socfpga\spl.c .
Adding the following code to the spl.c file causes the controller to write walking 1s and walking 0s, repeated five times, to the SDRAM.
/*added for demo, place after the last #define statement in spl.c */
#define ROTATE_RIGHT(X) ( (X>>1) | (X&1?0X80000000:0) )
/*added for demo, place after the calibration code */
 test_data_walk0((long *)0x100000,PHYS_SDRAM_1_SIZE);
int test_data_walk0(long *base, long maxsize)
	volatile long *addr;
	long           cnt;
	ulong	       data_temp[3];
        ulong	       expected_data[3];
	ulong	       read_data;   
        int            i = 0;  //counter to loop different data pattern
        int	       num_address;

       data_temp[0]=0XFFFFFFFE; //initial data for walking 0 pattern
       data_temp[1]=0X00000001; //initial data for walking 1 pattern
       data_temp[2]=0XAAAAAAAA; //initial data for A->5 switching

       expected_data[0]=0XFFFFFFFE; //initial data for walking 0 pattern
       expected_data[1]=0X00000001; //initial data for walking 1 pattern
       expected_data[2]=0XAAAAAAAA; //initial data for A->5 switching		
       for (i=0;i<3;i++) { 	
	printf("\nSTARTED %08X DATA PATTERN !!!!\n",data_temp[i]);
