Thanks, at first sight, this looks good. I don't see any obvious problem
in the tracer code either. Anyway, I will play with it asap.

Ok, thanks. Btw, returning from NAP on 6xx is done through an exception,
right? If so, maybe we have a problem with this particular
exception/interrupt branching directly to transfer_to_handler_full (i.e.
the vanilla way) without being known from the Adeos pipeline, albeit it
should? (red blinking warning: this is just a wild guess).

I'll give it a try too on a mpc52xx. Thanks again.
