There is no good reason for making this a separate commit.  Please
squash with the other commit.

Best regards,

But is this not exactly the purpose of the "bmode" command ? Anyway, at
next power-on, the board boots again from SPI-NOR. There should be
indication here how to erase the SPI Flash

You do not need it. This is the general instruction to build any board
in u-boot, and u-boot.imx is automatically generated for i.MX6 boards.

This can be wrong if the Linux PC uses /dev/mmcblk* instead of /dev/sXx

+U-Boot for the Congatec Conga-QEVAl Evaluation Carrier board
+
+This file contains information for the port of U-Boot to the Congatec
+Conga-QEVAl Evaluation Carrier board.
+
+1. Boot source, boot from SD card
+---------------------------------
+
+This version of u-boot works only on the SD card. By default, the

+--------
+
+To build U-Boot for the Congatec board:
+
+ make cgtqmx6_config
+ make u-boot.imx
