The most probable cause is that unprivileged code tried to execute
instructions that need a higher privilege level. Of course, you can also
execute some invalid opcodes, but most code is produced by
compiler/assembler so there is little chance for this.

Another possibility is that some code (e.g. do you use the tracing
framework?) uses the ARM performance counters. They are not configured
to be used by userland components by default. You can add "perf_counter"
to your SPEC-variables to enable them. Do something like this:

  echo "SPECS += perf_counter" >> <path_to_build_dir>/etc/specs.conf

In general, we should extend the print warning by adding which component
and which thread triggered the "undefined instruction", as well as the
current instruction pointer. I have opened a corresponding issue:

That the platform driver announces its service doesn't say whether it is
working correctly. Most work of the platform driver is done when a
client comes to it and asks for device resources (power, clock etc.) For
me it seems like the driver triggers a pagefault (see your last log
messages), you should check what your driver is trying to do at the
instruction pointer given by the fault message (IP 10001e94). Maybe you
use wrong memory-mapped I/O regions?

Forget about the config file. See the explanations from my last mail.

As already said, I assume it is your platform driver.
