Ouch. That would explain more or less any SCR related bug. :)

I'm not seeing it on any controller here, so right now I'd guess a driver problem. No idea why though.

Are you seeing this effect on other cards?

There's always bisecting the issue until you find the offending commit. Time consuming, but it gets the job done.

Other than that, try adding some printk() to pxamci's data transfer routines and dump the data when it is fresh.

It's definitely something to remember in future bug reports.
