Ok first off the issue with ROM_CC and #if - #else - #endif not
After some testing I have at least found the problem and it only ever
happens if you put a C++ style
comment on the same line as the #if or #else
so in the following example
static void test_ifdef(void)
#if TEST_IFDEF // blows up
#else /* ok */
Of course no comment works fine as well. Also putting a blank line
after the comment produces the correct code.
I can't say for the rest of the linuxbios code, but the via/epia code
seems to have a good mixture of both types of comments.
Perhaps as the code is not strictly C++ you should stick to using
standard C style comments.
Ok now to my problems with the EPIA board. I think in general it is
working ok, but I still have some problems.
