My s2895 doesn't do a soft reset correctly with the coreboot image, but it does with the factory image. Have you seen that problem? It seems strange, because the "Reset triggered" message still shows up, along with "Rebooting the emulated CPU", but then I get Readback errors. I patched SerialICE to redo the handshake on reset, but that doesn't help.
I think I'm getting closer, but if someone has already seen something similar or has suggestions...
I saw something similar with the HP board I ported, turned out to be the IPMI BMC hijacking the serial port at soft reset. Not sure exactly what conditions triggered it, but I got it sorted by disabling the IPMI serial port CLI using ipmitool or something similar. Let me know if this sounds at all likely with your setup, and I'll dig some more.
I don't think my board has IPMI. It seems to be triggered by changing the HyperTransport widths. If I leave it in 8-bit mode it doesn't quit. Unfortunately that's not OK, so I'm still trying to narrow it down.
