   I flashed the moko11 GSM firmware today and found the same thing: -oo
without FLUID_FLOWCONTROL works. I couldn't not get any of the other
combinations to work. I first backed up the old firmware, then flashed the
new one:

# time FLUID_PORT=/dev/ttySAC0 fluid.exe -oo -r 0x00000000..0x00400000 -f ~rask/download/firmware/calypso-firmware-backup.m0
(real	6m28.286s	user	0m11.200s	sys	0m4.315s)

# time FLUID_PORT=/dev/ttySAC0 fluid.exe -oo -f ~rask/download/firmware/calypso-moko11.m0
(real	2m56.764s	user	0m16.070s	sys	0m0.990s)

   I did need two power off/on cycles between the two fluid invocations,
though. I did not use "s3c24xx-gpio b7=0" as according to the schematics,
pin GPIOB7 is just the MODEM_ON signal.
