nitrogen6lite stall and cpu load

Hi,

 

I am experiencing following two problems with My nitrogen6lite board - anyone else has experienced similar problems? I am using boundary devices kernel and custom rootfs.

 

1. When running from SD Card and starting for example new applications, the system occasionally stalls for something like 5 seconds after which it continues normally and application starts. For

Me this looks like I/O problems of some kind but not sure?

 

2. Load average on completely idle device (all user mode processes killed) seem somehow strangely high. E.g.

 

CPU: 0% usr 0% sys 0% nic 99% idle 0% io 0% irq 0% sirq

Load average: 2.03 1.24 0.53 1/50 1415


As far as I understood, the load average should fall close to zero (no processes run queue waiting for execution), right?


I also made similar findings with SabreLite (quad core) where the Load average was somewhere near 4.
