We had a similar problem working with Fiasco.OC and GendodeOS on ODROID-X2 (Exynos4412) platform. In this case after the review of GenodeOS and Fiasco.OC, we identified a small problem in the TrustZone implementation, where interrupts remain disabled.

Perhaps this is not the same problem but it can help.


Best regards

'Hello' can work well, which prints "Hello World!" circularly. I add printk(".\n") in timer_thread in arch/l4/kernel/timer.c, and found timer_thread stop at l4_ipc_reply_and_wait(u, t, &l, to) after initializing the variable ‘increment’. However, if I use LOG_printf() for printing, the phenomenon is different, that timer_thread trigers a soft interrupt once. I have checked src/kern/arm/timer-arm-generic.cpp and src/kern/arm/generic_timer.cpp in the Fiasco kernel, there is less likely to be a problem with them.
