2016.4-2017.4 Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC: PetaLinux does not correctly override the U-boot environment variables to set SD boot when both eMMC(SDIO0) and SD(SDIO1) are enabled in design

Description

2016.4-2017.4 PetaLinux does not correctly override the U-boot environment variables to set SD boot when both eMMC(SDIO0) and SD(SDIO1) are enabled in design

For example:

I have an eMMC device on SDIO0 and an SD card on SDIO1. 

I configure PetaLinux to boot from the SDIO1 device by selecting the following:

petalinux-config ---> Subsystem AUTO Hardware Settings ---> SD/SDIO Settings ---> Primary SD/SDIO (psu_sd_1)

However, the tools still generate a U-Boot that inexplicably attempts to boot from mmc 0 instead of mmc 1 as expected.

Solution

To resolve this issue, you will need to change the U-boot environment variables.

1) Copy the U-boot environment variable define CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS from <plnx-proj-root>/project-spec/meta-plnx-generated/recipes-bsp/u-boot/configs/platform-auto.h

Then add it to the following file <plnx-proj-root>/project-spec/meta-user/recipes-bsp/u-boot/files/platform-top.h

2) Modify the cp_kernel2ram env variable from mmc 0 to mmc 1 as highlighted below:
