Hi all,

well i have some news with this coldfire 5307 issue,

i disassembled and put some loop as opcodes here and there in the kernel 
(4ef9 0000 XXXX  jmp XXXX ) as a very rude debug.

The issue is just at the beginning:

Dump of assembler code for function _text:

0x00000470 <_text+112>:    clrl %d0

Seems that after setting stack frame to 0 the code jump to the interrupt 
vector _fault routine.

Probably i should set to the stack frame a more appropriate value for my 
custom board, near the top of the SDRAM, or in the internal SRAM 
probably should be better, but i am not finding if there is some custom 
.c or makefile for this.

Every help is appreciated,

thanks in advance
