[meta-freescale] i.mx23 olinuxino kernel (or cross-toolchain?) broken in Yocto dora branch

Hello all,

I see a problem in the "dora" release (repo) set of the meta-fsl community
bsp for i.mx23 olinuxino (maxi). I had no such issues with the "dylan"
release (repo) set.

Once the kernel 3.12 tries to boot, the i.MX23 Olinuxino Maxi board moves
into a quick reset loop where u-boot reports the DRAM size then resets
(just before reporting MMC).

Reverting to the 3.8.x (dylan) recipe of the kernel, but using the "dora"
release of anything else, this kernel does not boot after "Starting kernel".

I have seen reports of illegal instruction during the kernel boot.

I am actually suspecting the cross toolchain at this point rather than the

I lack any debug reports as I am writing this just before leaving office to
go home, in the hope someone else can verify my findings.

Will look into this over the next few days.


Leon Woestenberg.
