I am using PPC 8248 and Linux 2.6.10 with MVL RT patch. 


With this I am receiving following error on very few custom made application specific boards..


dsp1:<3>:Ioctl - HPI_WRITE_BLOCK
Machine check in kernel mode.
Caused by (from SRR1=49030): Transfer error ack signal
Oops: machine check, sig: 7 [#1]

I can understand certain part that dsp1 driver ioctl call is failing, and while trying to write block to HPI bus interface.


But this never happens in certain boards but happens in very few board, not sure how can I debug this further.


Any guidelines would be greatly helpful !
