We don't have status LEDs on our (custom) board.

No, we use normal bus writes, and reads triggered by an interrupt.

IRQ stays high when the FPGA is not configured.

Yes, we use two PA pins to program the FPGA

For us, even when we don't initialise the FPGA (all outputs stay tristated all 
the time since poweron), our reboot fails.
The irq stays high, and the Etrax is able to boot correctly the first time 
after powerup, it never sees any interrupts.

I must say that we do have DRQ0 and DACK0 connected (both currently unused).
Maybe these can prevent the Etrax from rebooting correctly?
