Hey Steffen-

Thanks for sharing this! I'll be looking to get board support for the
zc702 on top of your work this weekend (I have several Zynq boards, but
none of them are ZedBoards).  I'm also in the process of porting the
uboot zynq_gem driver.

Do you have plans for submitting this to the list?

Thanks again,
