Re: eCos 3.0 beta 1 punch list #2
Sorry I sounded a bit harsh there. It was late and I was tired. But I do
believe that a .0 release should go out with an API which will work in future.
More constructively, until I know what the "messy" bit is, I suggest adding:
externC cyg_flash_printf *cyg_flash_set_printf( const cyg_flashaddr_t
base, cyg_flash_printf *pf);
which associates the printf function of flash at base 'base' with function
'pf', returning its previous setting. There would also be:
#define CYG_FLASH_SET_PRINTF_ALL ((cyg_flashaddr_t)-1);
which is used to set all devices' printf functions (and always return NULL).
We can instantly deprecate use of cyg_flash_init with non-NULL argument.
And if the messiness is too much to deal with after all, we can continue
with cyg_flash_init, and in future it would be more or less #defined to
