When booting to RAM eCos should be loaded to 0xc0000000 and the jump
should also be to that address (for the Linux kernel the address
is 0xc0004000 because two pages are reserved at the bottom of the

So, do boot_linux -i kimage -p and then replace 
--file kimage c0004000 --jump c0004000
--file ecos.bin c0000000 --jump c0000000

(First you should do bin-cris -o ecos.bin <ecos ELF file>)

Is the --jump address the one that i get if I do readelf -h <prog>, and
look at the Entry point address entry?

Yes, please. I would be very grateful. Thank you. (I have devboard 82)

OK, fair enough. What I am doing is developing a device driver which
needs about 100 us resolution. But the standard kernel has the
resolution of about 10 ms. So I am planing to develop one by using fast
timers. But all so I am thinking of using this project for my BS thesis
and because of that I will develop one more driver that will use the
RTAI kernel extensions (if I will ever get the RTAI patched kernel to
compile) and it would be very nice if I could develop one more that will
use eCos. So that I will be able to compere how they behave under heavy
