And another possibilities are:
DMA cache coherency
NEC VR4xxxs have no bus-snoop function. So
cache-coherency must be maintaind by software.
(or use KSEG1 access)
But I remember linux-2.4.18 of usb-ohci.c doesn't have
Read/write cycle order
Read/write cycle order of CPU instruction level is
guaranteed at bus level?
( Or at assembler level, the sequent instruction is
re-ordered ? )
Newer version of usb-ohci.c has some wmb() funtions.
It synchronizes read/write order.
I got similar errors on VR4181A with 2.4.18 kernel. VR4181A has
built-in USB OHCI 1.1 host connected internal PCI bus.
To fix this problem, I compared newer usb-ohci.c and put wmb()
corresponded place. It is expaneded as subsequent NOPs. (VR4xxx has
real SYNC instruction.)
