u-boot v2016.03 working for anyone?

Hi,  

 

I have two boards - a de0_nano_soc and a sockit. Neither works with a u-boot v2016.03 build. 

 

Is anybody out there using these eval boards able to successfully build & run u-boot? 

 

On both cards, the u-boot-with-spl.sfp (includes SPL, uboot.img, dtb all in one) I generate either  

doesn't boot at all, or boots sporadically, failing on memory calibration.  

 

Here is one example:

drivers/ddr/altera/sequencer.c: Preparing to start memory calibration 

drivers/ddr/altera/sequencer.c: CALIBRATION FAILED 

drivers/ddr/altera/sequencer.c: Calibration complete 

SDRAM calibration failed. 

### ERROR# ## Please RESET the board# ##
