First of all, Andrew is right, ask eCosCentric.
Second: it's telling you there is a data overrun at the master side
(CPU side) which means there is data incoming, but the peripheral is
not ready to handle it (RXRDY), so the receive side is getting
overrun. This is an error state flagged by the peripheral, so you need
to track down your problem. Or data is coming too fast, or your
application is too slow to handle received data.
