|I have a private port for an iMX31 based board which is itself based on evbarm. When I enable L2 cache in start.S the startup process freezes when I switch to the real L1 page table in initarm(). |
I wrote a custom flash boot program that loads the kernel with an initial ram disk. I enable L2 cache in the flash boot program and I see about a 15% to 20% improvement in load time; but when I start the kernel I do not enable L2 cache for the reason described above.
Can you give me some clues into the infrastructure that may need work to support L2 cache?
