I studied a little bit my buildbot reports on a PPC405 (without FPU) regarding
the FPU problem. Grepping through the saved reports on the server enabled me
to pinpoint the changes quickly. I found the following situation:
Last good check with the quick build was build 58 1604
First bad check with the quick build was build 59 with revision 1605
But the full build 13 with revision 1604 already had the failure!
The full build 12 had revision 1599 and was good.
May be this helps to pinpoint the FPU problem a bit.
Question: Is reporting 1 != 2 always the expected output of the FPU check?
A bad check looks like:
== Testing FPU cXenomai: suspending kernel thread c1ba8ea0 ('rtk5/0') at
0xc30303ec after exception #1792
r0: 1 != 2
r31: 1 != 2
== FPU check routines: OK.
== Threads: sleeper_ufps-0 rtk-1 rtk-2 rtk_fp-3 rtk_fp-4 rtk_fp_ufpp-5

RTD| 5| 5
Unfortunately I still do not have a x86-box at home where I could run buildbot
