Subject[PATCH 09/25] Blackfin: fix accidental reset in some boot modes
From: Sonic Zhang <>

We read the SWRST (Software Reset) register to get at the last reset
state, and then we may configure the DOUBLE_FAULT bit to control behavior
when a double fault occurs. But if the lower bits of the register is
already set (like UART boot mode on a BF54x), we inadvertently make the
system reset by writing to the SYSTEM_RESET field at the same time. So
make sure the lower 4 bits are always cleared.
