No, that does not sound right. cyg_flash_setbits should not be doing
anything with mutex's. Also, you should not be using mutex's inside a
DSR. I think the mutex problem is being triggered from some other
location. You should be able to put a breakpoint in cyg_assert_failed
and then get a backtrace from gdb.
