This file was properly created with correct xxxxx and yyyyy. For Administrator I had only:
uid 0
gid 0
but the map_static directive don't seem to have any influence on my error.

I have seen that I can transfer files through NFS from the u-boot bootloader on the same board. It looks like it takes more time, there is a latency of about 5 seconds before the beginning of the transfer and at the end, so I tried to play with the timeo option in the kernel arguments, without any effect.

Thank you,
