I modified the bcom_gen_bd_rx_task for a LPB peripheral as to perform  
Endianess swapping during the transfer (works meanwhile :-).    
Modifying the standard kernel code for testing seemed to be the wrong  
approach for me, so I wrote that patch...

If possible, I would also like to have a crc32 calculation performed by  
BestComm, but unfortunately there is no documentation and Freescale  
doesn't give any support, so it's all trial and error and error and  
error...  If you have any idea, pointers would be appreciated!

I don't think so - the message body is a "format=flowed" (RFC 3676)  
text/plain part.  Maybe your MUA doesn't display that format correctly  
(Outlook?)?  Or is '3676 in general not acceptable for patches?

Thanks - will submit a fixed patch next week, stay tuned...

Cheers, Albrecht.

P.S.: Did your mtd-ram/physmap_of patch you submitted a while ago make  
it into the stock kernel?  I have some pending extra work (16-bit LPB  
RAM access) building on top of it...
