I was talking about the patch attached to my message, which is derived from
the patch you mentioned before. But, mine does not removes the RAMBASE
setting from other LX-based boards' Kconfig, so do not commit it yet,
please. Furthermore, I have another idea, which I think is cleaner. I'll
check if it's possible to implement.

Maybe it's enough to add a big, fat comment to the line in question

Ok, I'll try to make a patch following these guidelines and resubmit it
after some testing. I'll also remove the RAMBASE @0x4000 from the Kconfig of
LX-based boards, if mine works.

Best regards,
