14.5 EDK - Connecting both Zynq-7000 SPI controllers to EMIO results in "ERROR:EDK:3900 MHS file editing for Zynq related parameters is not allowed"


If I attempt to route the Zynq's SPI controllers to EMIO, the following error occurs:

"ERROR:EDK:3900 - issued from TCL procedure "zynqconfig_do" line 34 processing_system7_0 (processing_system7) - MHS file editing for Zynq releated parameters is not allowed. Please use Zynq tab in XPS for PS configuration.
Value of parameter C_EN_EMIO_SPIO (1) in MHS conflicts with the setting in Zynq tab. Value of C_EN_EMIO_SPIO should be 0
The MHS file was never edited. Sometimes, platgen.exe crashes altogether."


This is a known issue in the 14.5 and 14.6 versions of XPS. A patch is attached at the end of this answer record, please extract the files into your $Xilinx\14.x\ISE_DS\ISE\data\zynqconfig\spi folder.
