Since your are porting from EWARM to gnu you migth have fall into a
"trap". In code done for IAR EWARM I often found bitfields to access
hardware-registers. For arm-gcc (at least up to Ver 4.1.2, I have not
tested 4.2.x) this does not work (well sometimes it will...) since some
of the bitfield-accesses get optimized to assembler-instructions for
8bit/byte read/write which are not allowed for hardware-register access.
So review your c-sources for lines like regfoo.bitxy = 1 and repleace
them with REGFOO |= (1UL << bitxypos) where REFOO points to the same
About the bootloader: I have tested it successfully with an STR710
eval-board from ST. Since the STR711 might be a little different it's
possible that small modifications are needed. I do not have a board with
an STR711 here for tests.
