Unfortunately, ipipe for bfin is still borken: my setup is +
"uclinux mtd maps: add blackfin maps" + the ipipe patch above on a BF537
stamp. I'm running the cache calibrator over the serial console and a
hello world shell loop over telnet. When ipipe is enabled (no Xenomai)
and the calibrator is in its measurement cycle, the telnet connection
stalls. Actually, it seems the whole Linux scheduling stalls, because
when I turn this into a background loop, it doesn't make progress when
the calibrator runs. All this does not happen when I disable ipipe in
the config.
