Hello Nick,

thank you again for the answer.

One last question - Does the eCos repository sourcecode contain other char
arrays wich need to be aligned to a certain boundary. I read the mailing
lists and found the posts from Larice Rober about stack violations and char
array alignment.

The KPIT crew confirmed that the h8300-elf-gcc compiler does not align char
arrays to any boundary.

If this alignement problem could cause serious problems with other char
arrays within the eCos repository then further development of the EDOSK-2674
and H8S port is not possible until the h8300-elf-gcc is patched. This
problem also concerns the H8300 port within the eCos repository which would
be unusable with this problem.

Regards, Uwe
