Summary: Random hang when repeating test hardware error trap
system will random hang when repeating test the hardware error, may hang on the 8th, or the 19th.
It existed on 0.3 533(when doing hardware error testing), and 0.2 537(when doing dcplb miss testing). It is frequently on 0.4 533.

(here the system hang, watchdog seems can't reboot it)

This bug is caused by watchdog fail.
When watchdog time out, the board hang there, not reset.

not a bug then ...

Is it a bootrom bug? I can not find it in anomaly list.
--- Mike Frysinger 2009-05-04 22:08:36
the bootrom is not executed at all on the BF533 in bypass mode
the Blackfin system is known to not be recoverable under some circumstances and
i imagine this is one of them (e.g. CFI flash is put into some intermediate mode
where reading is not possible, and then a reset occurs)

Is it better to turn of watchdog when running trap test?
--- Mike Frysinger 2009-05-04 22:58:53
no ... Graf's test case is running traps over and over in a tight loop. that
doesnt occur in the normal test case that gets run on the test bench.
it is also triggering a bug in our hardware handling code that Robin is working
on fixing, so once that gets resolved, it should be much less of an issue.

It is not a bug, I will close it.
