> Agree with you. For dra7xx platform the SPL size has been increased to 256KB and hence the existing QSPI SPL partition in kernel (64K size) will break when latest mainline u-boot is used.

What about the renumbering of partitions in your patch?

Probably just best to make the partition information empty in the
kernel as discussed.
