There aren't any configuration options for this - it's assumed to work.

Can you please explain in more detail exactly what you've done to get
things to work?  Given that the generic functions (e.g. flash_program)
already disable interrupts, I'm a bit confused.

Given that the eCos port for the MPC5200 is not public (you got it
from Analogue & Micro), it makes sense to ask these questions of
A&M, not the general list.
