I do get the correct result after echo 2 >
Ok, so 100% sure that it is a alignment problem. The kernel
fixup is always
activated and shouldn't create such problems as the page faults you mentioned
in your first post. Maybe some communication between kernelland and userland
has gone wrong. Can you test batmand with batgat and activated alignment
(Thanks for the link - it is a real nice overview).
