This is a new instruction anomaly -- which the silicon folks have confirmed, but
not root caused, or provided a workaround, or added to the anomaly sheets.
As soon as that happens, we will need to change things - until then -- there
isn't much to do...???

On bf548 ezkit and bf518f-ezkit, there is one more fail test 21. It is not found
failing on other boards.

It is strange that when the testing target board is switching to bf527 ezkit 0.2
on Sep 22, case 21 also fails. While this case used to be passed on bf527 ezkit

I move the fail of traps test 21 to a new bug
5674 traps test 21 prefetch _l1_no fails on trunk head On bf548 and bf518 and
Barry will take a look at that first.

There are a bunch of known (and undocumented) silicon errata (anomalies) which
have to do with prefetch.
Until these are figured out -- it might be best to just to temporarily remove
all the prefetch tests in traps tests.
--- Sonic Zhang 2010-04-16 05:39:03
Vivi, please remove all prefetch tests in traps tests.
--- Vivi Li 2010-04-19 00:00:10
Traps test passed.
So close this bug.
--- Vivi Li 2010-06-07 05:04:20
The problem still exists. Test script is modified to ignore the error of running
prefetch test in traps.
