And a further data point: I've taken the SD card containing kernel 4.16-rc5, stretch rootfs used in my tests so far, replaced U-boot 2018.03 and the dtb with the Pine64+ versions and successfully booted on a PINE A64-LTS board a friend lent me. There are no instances of the "BUG: bad page state in process ..." and I also see the Ethernet device in U-boot and the kernel. In summary the above plus my testing so far with two separate Olimex A64-oLinuXino boards points to the Olimex board support and/or hardware in general being the cause of the problem. -mato -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "linux-sunxi" group.
