7.1i EDK - XMD application error (crash) download using xmdstub over UART

Description

Keywords: XMD, ELF, UARTLite, MicroBlaze, xmdstub

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In EDK 7.1, downloading an ELF using xmdstub with opb_uartlite causes XMD to crash. It is not possible to run ChipScope inserter with XMD, so if I want to use ChipScope inserter with MB, then I must use xmdstub.

Solution

A tactical patch has been released for this issue.
