3.1i Virtex PAR - Range constraint expansion in Modular Design uses too much memory.

Description

Keywords: Modular, par, place, placer, range, memory

Urgency: Standard

Problem Description:
Currently range constraints are put in the pcf as:

COMP X LOCATE=SITE A:B

The desprefs code expands this such that a constraint is put
onto each site A:B that says it can hold comp X. This eats up
a lot of memory when working with modules on large designs.

A fix is being developed that is more efficient in memory usage.

Solution
