[ECOS] IXP425 UART Problem
Thu Nov 23 07:47:00 GMT 2006
We are running redboot on IXP 425 platform. The IXP425 has a known bug
that when the UART break indicator (fourth bit of LSR) is de-asserted,
it is possible for the UART to detect a start bit and receive an
incorrect 0xFF byte. And this bug is not fixed.
So when this incorrect 0xFF byte received the bootloader goes in
blocking read mon_read_char() and the bootloader gets stuck up there.
Does anybody have any workaround for this?
