It seems that I've made mistake in implementing memory mapped
register access. Even if datasheet says no special things for
reloading EEPROM, Rhine family seems to default to io register
access after reloading EEPROM. I guess this would be root cause of
Milan Obuch's issue. It seems that his hardware requires memory
mapped register access but reloading EEPROM disabled it.
ATM I have no clean idea how can I renable memory mapped register
access after EEPROM reloading without hacks so I completely backed
out memory mapped register access and put updated vr(4) to the same
URL. Please try again updated vr(4) and let me know how it goes.
