I am trying to boot a foxg20 board. It uses an at91sam9g20 chip an
used to work in linux 3.5. I am looking for some advice on how to get
mainline linux to boot on it.
I first tried bisecting and found this commit:
which is where it wouldn't boot
I figured I should understand what broke, I ended up simply upping
MMC_CMD_RETRIES from 3 to 10. So I was able to boot the version that
caused it to not work. This change doesn't fix the lastest has unified
some of the driver code.
My question is:
What is a good way to boot the latest kernel? Should I see where it
breaks then keeping fixing that and moving forward or should I just
start with the latest and take it from there?
