mask 8000000 means URXEVT0 (UART0 rx), 4000000 is UTXEVT0 (UART0 tx) events.
But it is clear that my theory was not even close to what's going on.
Do you have some tool which can be used to reproduce this issue?

Hrm, this is interesting. Am I interpret it right:
if you clear the event missed register's bit for the event, you will receive
the interrupt, but there if you read the EMR bits, they are all 0.
if you do not clear the bit in the event missed register (even if it is not
set) you will not receive the error interrupt. Right?

I think this can be due to the fact how edma (if I read the TRM right) works:
the error irq will be asserted if there is a transition from 0 to 1 in one of
the error registers. If you had error and you did not cleared the error bit,
the next error will not going to cause another transition so no interrupt will
be triggered. Having said that, there should be at least one error interrupt
coming since at some point we should have had 0 -> 1 transition...

Can you print out also the EDMA_EMR at places you were printing EDMA_EMCR?
