[ECOS] corrupt fis detection
Mon Mar 7 03:32:00 GMT 2005
we are erasing the fis block from linux kernel and rewritting it with
new information every time on a successfull boot up.
In case of power failure, this I realise opens up a window of error.
Between erase and final write if power reset happens.
Can we be sure that fis will detect that its an unprogrammed fis and act ?
how does redboot detect that fis is blank, some magic number etc ?
Can we be sure that redboot will atleast not get screwed in reading
half cooked information ?
any other way to do this ?
