Kernel migration from 3.13-rel14 to 3.10-ltsi - Reboot


I was able to successfully migrate from kernel 3.13 to 3.10 ltsi but there is problem, when I type reboot in Linux the system get stuck after shutdown and does not boot again.

In kernel it works OK. but in 3.10 ltsi not. I applied all patches from 3.13 to 3.10 and everything is working OK, but this reboot is problem (soft reset) from Linux.

Are there Any changes in rebooting between 3.13 and 3.10 ltsi kernel?

I am using NOR memory for storing images.
And using yocto environment to build kernels.

Kernel 3.13 src
SRC_URI = “git://;protocol=http;branch=socfpga-3.13-rel14.0”

Kernel 3.10 ltsi src
SRC_URI = “git://;protocol=http;branch=socfpga-3.10-ltsi”

Any ideas please where problem should be?


What dev board you’re using?

It’s custom board.
Only difference is just kernel.
And its saved on QSPI memory and after reboot qspi is reset and boot should start again from preloader.

Hi @tomyone,

I got also issue with the ‘reboot’ cmd. since I update my u-boot to a recent mainline v2017.07

Did you solve your issue ?


Hello, Sadly I was not able to find solution for this, It was Just a testing SW so we could live without SW restart :smiley:
