                     Release Note for BCM5705 BOOT Code Firmware
                    ==================================================
Version 3.14:

  1. Changed SEEPROM clock speed from 148 Khz to 374 Khz.

      Problem: The SEEPROM clock speed was set to 148KHz, in which, resulted
               in longer 2nd phase bootcode loading time. 
      Cause:   The specification did not indicate the source frequency to be 
               used to generate SEEPROM clock. The bootcode was using core 
               clock, same as 5702/3/4, for the calculation of the frequency.
      Fix:     The bootcode bypassed the initialization and using hardware
               default speed of 374 Khz. 

Version 3.13: 

  1. Changed default VPD data string from "5782" to "5705"

      Problem: The VPD data default seting was set to 5782 instead of 5705
      Cause:   The file gen_nic_mfg3.c was shared by 5782 project. When 
               the string was Changed in 5782 project, the string also got 
               changed in 5705 project. 
      Fix:     The file is separated between projects. Now each project has
               it's own copy of gen_ic_mfg3.c.
   
Version 3.12:

  1. Use default setting as 1.2V voltage for A1 and later.
  
      Problem: The core 1.2V voltage was set to 1.38V.
      Cause:   The chip revision A0 had a bug that the core voltage was too
               low, to workaround this problem, the bootcode was programming
               the core voltage higher.
               In A1 revsion, the problem is fixed in hardware; however, the
               bootcode was still programming the higher voltage. As result,
               the voltage was set to 1.38V, higher than legal voltage.
      Fix:     Bootcode will program higher voltage for revision A0 chip only.
               For A1 and later, it will use hardware default value. 

  2. Fixed PXE ROM size bug

      Problem: The secfg option 29, expansion ROM size was not taking effect.
      Cause:   Bootcode did not program the correct value in the register.
      Fix:     Bootcode is changed to program correct expansion ROM size
               setting in NVRAM configuration into register.

  3. Moved ClockRun enable code to the beginning of config access

      Problem: The PCI config space register cannot be access correctly when
               ClockRun is disabled and the BIOS had ClockRun feature 
               turned on.
      Cause:   When BIOS enables ClockRun feature, the miniPCI bus clock
               stops until ClockRun signals is asserted by device. Without
               enabling ClockRun in device, there is no PCI clock and
               bootcode has no access to PCI config space. 
      Fix:     The problem cannot be fixed in bootcode because the ClockRun
               enable bit itself is in PCI config. space.
               The change here is to move the enabling ClockRun at earlier
               time, before any config space access, and hoping (by luck) 
               there is an activities on the bus to trigger the bootcode 
               write successfully to reduce the chance of subsequence 
               incorrect access.

    3. Enabled RX CPU Instruction/data cache (to improve perfomance)
	4. Use 16 word NVRAM access for PXE

Version 3.08:
    1. Added PXE loading fix.
    2. Added Workaround for Errat#19. (DAC trim default values need to increase 4%)
    3. Fixed phy power down problem (ClearQuest 6001)
    4. Supports A1 revision silicon

Version 3.07:
