Hello Miklos,

at first, I desire to ask you, Are you able to run any eCos application
(no RedBoot yet) in ROM with your own HAL? I.e., are those minimal
(hal/infra) eCos tests able to run in ROM?

Try it in bash:

 	ecosconfig new <your target name> minimal

 	cat >minrom.ecm<<__eof
 	cdl_component CYG_HAL_STARTUP {user_value ROM};

 	ecosconfig import minrom.ecm
 	ecosconfig resolve
 	ecosconfig tree

 	make tests

There shoud be 4 tests (it's main is to check HAL basics)

 	`-- common
 	    `-- current
 		`-- tests
 		    |-- basic
 		    |-- cache
 		    |-- context
 		    `-- intr

Burn in ROM test by test and view it's output in minicom/hyperterm
(38440,n,8,1). Possible, you will be need in other output format (they
are ELF images), you can get another formats with objcopy utility. If
you will see normal outputs, therefore your HAL is okay and time to port
RedBoot. If you won't see (there isn't time to RedBoot there), dig then
in the hal_platform_setup.h, and your platform mlt files, certainly.
