[ECOS] ECOS Networking with Redboot on 8260

    Thank you for your reply. I have rebuilt the kernel again without the
networking and re-ran the tests. The "basic" and "context" tests do pass.
The cache tests are still failing.

    I find this situation strange since I am using the same evaluation board
as one of the predefined templates in the eCos distribution. I have made no
changes. Does anybody know if this port/template has been tested before
(Motorola 8260 VADS)? I do not know if this is a real problem that needs to
be debugged, or just something I am doing wrong.

Thanks for the help
    David Oliveira

If context is failing you probably cannot context switch
properly. Since the stack uses threads, this would be a problem.

Similarly, quiet a few network devices need to play with caches, so if
they don't work, that could also be a problem.

Before doing more with the network stack i would try to solve these
problems. cxxsupp is not so important.
