The master branch of upstream Buildroot currently contains the Fall 2016 skarnet release. I have not yet bumped to Spring 2017: as you may have seen, the patch for build time detection of types needs be refreshed. > The init usually stays blocked there: > > s6-rc: info: processing service fdholder: starting > > with the following processes running: > > 136 root s6-rc -v 3 -u change services-all > 143 root s6-fdholderd -1 -i data/rules > 146 root s6-ipcserverd -1 -- s6-ipcserver-access -v0 -E -l0 -i > data/rules -- s6-sudod -t 2000 -- /usr/libexec/s6-rc-oneshot-run -l > 173 root s6-svlisten1 -u -- /run/s6-rc/scandir/klogd-log s6-svc -u -- > /run/s6-rc/scandir/klogd-log > 183 root s6-ftrigrd > 296 root s6-svlisten1 -U -- /run/s6-rc/scandir/fdholder s6-svc -u -- > /run/s6-rc/scandir/fdholder > 297 root s6-ftrigrd > > and I regularly see the following message, even though not consistently: > > s6-ftrigrd: fatal: unable to flush asyncout: Broken pipe > > When I build the very same system for x86 I do not see any issue, it is very > stable, so I > suspect a cross-compilation issue.

I do my cross-compilation tests using QEMU and I remember having this kind of issue sometimes.
