[uClinux-dev] 5272, bootloader, and "Calibrating Delay Loops.."

We have (finally) been successful in creating a port of colilo for the 
5272C3 board. And it appears we're getting close. This has been a real 
uphill struggle for us. After telling it to (b)oot, it indicates that it 
is uncompressing the kernel, and then we see it start to boot uClinux. 
It gets as far as "Calibrating Delay Loops..". We put some printk lines 
in and it appears that jiffies is never incrementing. from what (very 
little) I understand about jiffies, thats not a good thing. When we ran 
it on top of dBug, it booted fine. So... I'm hoping there's someone out 
there that can give me information on what state I've got to put the 
chip in for uClinux to be booted. Because it looks like I'm missing 
something. :(

As soon, as we get this working we'd love to publish this version of 
colilo. If there's someone who's working on this (getting uClinux to run 
on the 5272) and wants to play with it, then let me know. I'd love to 
have someone with more experience figure this out. :)
