Re: 2015-04-19-netbsd-raspi-earmv6hf.img (Re: Raspberry Pi update please.)

Sorry, I´m replying late (I´ve been very busy :)

I can´t tell whether the kernel was compiled with LOCKDEBUG oder DEBUG
- i just installed Jun´s image as it was.

However, I tested with a current image from head on the Pi 2 and
haven´t seen these issues again. Write speed is about 6,5 MB/s on a
class 10 card, which is not perfect yet, I guess (UHS-I mode required
in the driver?). Also no strange hangs anymore. I saw that MP support
has been disabled again because of interrupt handling issues IIRC.

What I think might be an impact on performance is the dwc2 interrupt
issue - has anybody an idea about that?
