Description Jesper Skov 2001-01-05 09:45:16 UTC
Never got the caches on the OMAP to work properly - missing some detailed
info from TI (which has been requested).

Impact flash programming / performance overall, since it results in not
being able to safely disable/enable caches while programming flash.
Workaround is to leave caches disabled, but this results in horrible
performance.

Comment 1 Jesper Skov 2001-05-28 07:09:59 UTC
Interestingly, Gary also failed to make D-caches work on some other ARM9
variant. Appears there's some magic required in flushing/clearing the
D-cache on this variant of the ARM.


Comment 2 Jesper Skov 2001-12-03 11:29:38 UTC
This turned out to be a bad limit in one of the ARM9 HAL's cache handling loops.
