I am fiddeling around with an Au1550-System (Lippert CoolMoteMaster).
After I updated the Kernel from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 the flash driver
complaints about Bad eraseblocks at kernel start:

I get the same output from the .17.7. kernel apart from the 'Bad'-messages. The
size seems correct, as I should get one 256MB-flash-device. I did use the patch
from Lippert to set their platform data, which was intended for 184.108.40.206. With
small changes it also succeeds on 220.127.116.11 but this doesn't mean that it's
The 18.104.22.168 kernel still runs fine with that flash.
I am quite new to kernel hacking and after some cause searching I'm still lost.
Were there any changes in the necessary configuration / platform setup that I
am missing? Any ideas / hints what I can look for? Any common mistakes?
