Hm, sorry, i might be mixing several different issues here. I now see
that you're concerned about reported overruns that is being
investigated now with the help of Michael.

I intepreted you latest message as "there is no known issues wrt hardware
flowcontrol of datastreem between Calypso and SoC". Therefore i
immediatly remembered this bugreport that seems to be valid, related
to flowcontrol and uninvestigated. Sorry for the confusion.

Probably having bigger FIFO makes triggering weird behaviour a lot

Sorry for the confusion again.
