2015.1 PhysOpt_Design - High fanout nets are not optimized by PhysOpt_Design


PhysOpt_Design can fail to optimize some high fanout nets even though the -force_replication_on_nets feature is being used to target them:

INFO: [Physopt 32-571] Net i_bd_top/Lane0/PR_Region/otn_tcaui4_top_0/inst/U_0/i_HSEC_CORES/i_RX_TOP/i_RX_CORE/i_SRESETN/sresetn was not replicated.


A Vivado 2015.1 patch is available to correct this issue so that the replication occurs.

The patch file is too large to attach here but can be obtained by opening a webcase and requesting an EZMove transfer.
