Is there anything wrong with the patch I sent yesterday for 4.10.0 ?  
Does it work for you in  4.10.0?
We have used that code  for more than a year.

I debugged RTEM4.10.2 today.  It seems that the main issue is not 
related to the patch I sent
or the code in RTEM4.10.2 (e.g. bootcard.c), although there are some 
between the two. It seems that there are some bugs in the compiling tools
for RTEMS-4.10.2 because malloc() does not behave the same as 
RTEMS-4.10.0 does,
even though the relevant code are the same.

For both 4.10.0 and 4.10.2,  I used the gcc-core-4.4.6.tar.bz2 and 

However, for  RTEMS4.10.0, I applied the patch 
For  RTEMS4.10.2, I applied the patch 
gcc-core-4.4.6-rtems4.10-20110829.diff, and

Thus, it might depends on which version of compiling tools you use for 
both RTEMS-4.10
and RTEMS-4.10.2.  Perhaps, the tools are not interchangeable between 
4.10.0 and 4.10.2,
which I did not test yet.  Others might know these gcc tool patches 
better than me.

Hope this helps.
