Bug report: flash configuration issue on twrk60f120 in MQX 3.8.1

In MQX 3.8.1 the file mqx/source/bsp/twrk60f120m/cw/intflash.lcf incorrectly places the flash configuration data at 0x410 instead of 0x400. The actual configuration field ends up being filled with zeros, which results in a secured CPU (debug is disabled). CodeWarrior's flash programmer hides the issue by making sure the flash configuration is valid. Using other firmware loader tools or methods (e.g. over-the-air programming), which program the image verbatim, will be affected by the bug and may end up with undesirable security settings.

 

The fix is trivial, see the diff output below:
