Things to do before using armadeus-5.3

Warning Warning: APF27 & APF51 users should pay attention on the update procedure order when upgrading to armadeus-5.3. U-Boot have to be updated first or the board may be bricked !! Indeed we have made some changes to NAND mapping to be able to use Linux vanilla kernels easily and this mapping is not compatible with the older one. The procedure for APF27/APF51/PPSxx is then:
BIOS> run update_uboot
BIOS> reset
BIOS> run flash_reset_env
BIOS> reset
(change your environment variables)
BIOS> run update_all


Warning Warning: As compiler version/configuration has changed since armadeus-5.2 and as ccache is activated by default in our Buildroot defconfigs, you have to purge the cache as stated in Buildroot documentation:
"Note that Buildroot does not try to invalidate the cache
contents when the compiler changes in an incompatible
way. Therefore, if you make a change to the compiler version
and/or configuration, you are responsible for purging the
ccache cache by removing the $HOME/.buildroot-ccache
directory."
