i'm facing a problem in older uboot-code which may be fixed on newer, but i did not found the fixing commit yet. Maybe you can point me to it.

I need to use older code in this case because driver for mt7622 and other is not yet available for upstream uboot.

I have temporary changed optimization from -Os to -O1 which "fixes" the issue, currently i don't know why. Maybe you know more about it

I have found this Thread and tried to fix it with the packed-variant, but same crash happens again


my code (without last commit):

board is Bananapi R64 v0.1 (with rtl8367), code works with gcc4.8, 5.5, 6.3, but not with 7.3 and 8.3
