Thanks for the quick reply, Martin.<br>
I'll pull the current master branch tomorrow and let you know if
it fixes my issue.<br>
Thanks for the debugging tip on core faults. <br>
My core-only mmio regions are the same as they were in 14.02 and
unless the handling of the region has changed I should have the
correct translation table entries. My PDBG output from the
_mmu_exception method was:<br>
<i>void Kernel::Thread::_mmu_exception(): f_addr 0x1008 f_writes
0x1 f_pd 0x813d6004 f_signal 0x0 label core</i><i><br>
Looks like I've a problem with the fault address, so I'll keep
digging to see where that is coming from.<br>

<pre wrap="">I went back to the 14.05 issues today and found I could get the kernel
initialization to complete successfully if I reverted the S bit to
"unshared" in the memory attributes in a Section entry create. Prior to
14.05 this bit was set to "unshared" and was presumably changed in 14.05
to allow for multiple processors accessing the same memory regions.
We had an issue (<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://github.com/genodelabs/genode/issues/1181">https://github.com/genodelabs/genode/issues/1181</a>)
recently that the shared-bit should be set only when using SMP. The

14.05. Could you please give it a try?
<pre wrap="">In addition, after completing kernel initialization, core's "main"
function is entered, the info message for creating local services shows
up, a translation for the top of RAM (0x80000000) is created, then the
message "failed to communicate thread event" occurs and init is never
called. Any thoughts on why that message is appearing would be
appreciated. It appears to be coming from initialization of the root
This seems to be a page fault in core. Normally core should never
trigger a page fault because there's no one to handle it. So the kernel
doesn't know who to inform about it and thus prints this message. To
prevent this situation, memory regions statically needed by core
(program image, MMIO regions) get mapped 1:1 in the 'Core_pd'
constructor in 'base-hw/src/core/kernel/kernel.cc' using, among others,
the platform specific method 'Platform::_core_only_mmio_regions'. I
assume that your port misses a region in this function. You can get
further information about the page fault by printing things like
'_fault_addr', '_fault_writes', 'char const * Thread::label()', and
'unsigned long Thread::ip' in the method 'Thread::_mmu_exception()' in
'base-hw/src/core/arm/cpu_support.cc' right before '_fault.submit()'.
