 Interactive DDR debugging
-For DDR parameter tuning up and debugging, the interactive DDR debugging can
-be activated by saving an environment variable "ddr_interactive". The value
-doesn't matter. Once activated, U-boot prompts "FSL DDR>" before enabling DDR
-controller. The available commands can be seen by typing "help".
-Another way to enter debug mode without using environment variable is to send
-a key press during boot, like one would do to abort auto boot. To save booting
-time, no additioal delay is added so the window to send the key press is very
-short. For example, user can send the key press using reset command followed by
-hitting enter key twice. In case of power on reset, user can keep hitting any
-key while applying the power.
