Update Highlights
The focus of µC/FS™ File System for CCES version 1.1.0 is to support the release of ADSP-BF70x
processor family.
The version of the Micriµm's file system included with µC/FS™ File System for CCES version 1.1.0 has
been upgraded to v4.07.00.
Micriµm's file system documentation has migrated to their website at address
http://doc.micrium.com instead of being included with µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore® Embedded
Studio. Any documentation specific to Analog Devices processors can still be found within this product.
New supported Processors
µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore® Embedded Studio 1.1.0 supports all the processors supported by
µC/FS™ 1.0.2. The newly supported processors are:

ADSP-BF700, ADSP-BF701, ADSP-BF702, ADSP-BF703, ADSP-BF704, ADSP-BF705, ADSPBF706, ADSP-BF707
o Devices supported: RAM Disk, SD Card, USB Mass Storage
New add-ins to support ADSP-BF707
ROM
ADSP-BF70x processors include a Utility ROM which contains the µC/OS-III Real-Time Kernel and
µC/LIB and µC/CPU which are required by µC/OS-III. To support the utility ROM, µC/FS includes new
add-ins that do not add µC/LIB and µC/CPU to the project.To use µC/FS in a project with µC/OS-III in
ROM, you must choose the ROM-specific µC/FS add-ins. If you have uC-CPU from uC-FS (i.e non-ROM
uCFS) and the uCOS3 ROM then you will get double definitions and link errors.
Further, using the µC/FS components to support the µC/OS-III ROM configurations without a µC/OS-III
ROM add-in results in compilation failures since the µC/LIB and µC/CPU headers and sources are not in
the project.
Micriµm software versions
µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore® Embedded Studio version 1.1.0 is based on Micriµm's µC/FS™ File
System version 4.07.00
There are several CrossCore Embedded Studio add-ins based on Micriµm's products which share
common add-ins. To ensure that the same version of these add-ins is used by all the add-ins that require
them, these add-ins are installed in a common location which is distinct from the µC/OS-FS install folder.
These common add-ins are



µC/CPU which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog Devices\uC-CPU v1.1.0.
This installation includes µC/CPU version 1.30.01.
µC/LIB which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog Devices\uC-LIB v1.1.0. This
installation includes µC/LIB version 1.38.00. This is the minimum version of µC/LIB required to
build µC/FS 4.07.00. Version 1.38.00 of µC/LIB has deprecated some APIs that were used by
previous versions of µC/FS, most notably Mem_PoolBlkGetUsedAtIx() and
Mem_PoolBlkIxGet(). Updating to µC/FS V4.07.00 is required if updating other Micrium
products that require µC/LIB V1.38.00.
µC/CLK which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog Devices\uC-CLK
v1.1.0. This installation includes µC/CLK version 3.09.03
Version Compatibility

µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore®
Embedded Studio version 1.0.2 Release
Notes
Introduction
This document contains the release notes for µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore®
Embedded Studio version 1.0.2. It describes the release in detail and provides latest
information that supplements the main documentation.
Users of previous releases should check the "Version Compatibility" section for
pertinent instructions on modifying existing applications for this new release.
For product support assistance, please contact our Processor Tools Support Team
at [email protected]
Update Highlights
The focus of µC/FS™ File System for CCES version 1.0.2 is to support the release of
the Mass Storage Class (MSC) component. The MSC file system component is required
to use the µC/USB Host Stack add-in for CrossCore® Embedded Studio Mass Storage
Class component.
For new projects, the option to align buffers on cache lines is set by default since it
provides better performance out of the box. To create a project with the exact same
settings as in previous versions, you must uncheck the relevant box in the configuration
window.
The version of the Micriµm's file system included with µC/FS™ File System for
CCES version 1.0.2 contains major bug fixes in the NAND device support and therefore
it is highly recommended that NAND projects are updated. Similarly, the journaling
module has been fully redesigned so any journalled volume used under prior versions
must be cleanly unmounted before upgrading to µC/FS™ File System for
CCES version.
Supported Processors
The new USB Mass Storage Class component is supported in the following processors



ADSP-BF522, ADSP-BF524, ADSP-BF526, ADSP-BF523, ADSP-BF525, ADSPBF527
ADSP-BF542, ADSP-BF542M, ADSPBF547, ADSP-BF547M, ADSP-BF548,
ADSP-BF548M, ADSP-BF549, ADSP-BF549M
ADSP-BF606, ADSP-BF607, ADSP-BF608, ADSP-BF609

Micriµm software versions
µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore® Embedded Studio version 1.0.2 is based on
Micriµm's µC/FS™ File System version 4.06.01
There are several CrossCore Embedded Studio add-ins based on Micriµm's products
which share common add-ins. To ensure that the same version of these add-ins is used
by all the add-ins that require them, these add-ins are installed in a common location
which is distinct from the µC/OS-FS install folder. These common add-ins are:

µC/CPU which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog
Devices\uC-CPU v1.0.3. This installation includes µC/CPU version 1.29.02.03.


µC/LIB which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog Devices\uCLIB v1.0.3. This installation includes µC/LIB version 1.37.01.
µC/CLK which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog
Devices\uC-CLK v1.0.1. This installation includes µC/CLK version 3.09.03
Version Compatibility
µC/FS™ File System version 1.0.2 requires CrossCore® Embedded Studio version
1.0.2 or later.
The Mass Storage Class component of this release requires the use of µC/USB Host™
Stack which, in turn, requires device drivers which are only available in CrossCore®
Embedded Studio version 1.0.3. If you are using CrossCore® Embedded Studio version
1.0.2 then you will also need the USB host device drivers which have been provided
separately.
µC/FS™ File System for CCES version 1.0.2 upgrades the release of Micriµm's file
system to the latest currently available. This version of µC-FS introduces an
incompatibility in the NAND flash support due to changes in the low level formatting. If a
NAND device was used with a prior version of µC-FS then you should either:


Re-format the NAND flash prior to use (including both volume and low level
formatting). This is the recommended solution since the new low level formatting
settings are the ones preferred by Micriµm for all new development. To help with
the formatting the NAND examples provided with the µC/FS™ File System for
CrossCore® Embedded Studio version 1.0.2 installation contain the appropriate
APIs to execute the formatting. See each example's readme for further
information.
Edit your code to maintain compatibility. To do this you need to:
a) Define the macro APP_CFG_FS_NAND_UB_CNT_MAX=10 in the
compiler preprocessor options
b) Edit the file fs_app.c and add the following code to the function
App_FS_AddNAND. Note that this code is already included in the latest
fs_app.c template.
#ifdef APP_CFG_FS_NAND_UB_CNT_MAX
nand_cfg.UB_CntMax = APP_CFG_FS_NAND_UB_CNT_MAX;
#endif /* APP_CFG_FS_NAND_UB_CNT_MAX */
Software requirements
In order to use all the add-ins which are part of µC/FS File System version 1.0.2 to a
project we recommend that you use CrossCore Embedded Studio version 1.0.2 or later.
In order to add the Mass Storage Class component of µC/FS to a project you need to
use µC/USB Host™ Stack version 1.0.0 or later.

Version Compatibility
The add-In framework provided with CCES 1.0.0 and µC-FS 1.0.0 itself have several
undocumented issues related to add-In upgrades. Because of this it is recommended
that you do not use the CCES add-in framework to upgrade existing projects that use
µC/FS 1.0.0 add-ins to use µC/FS 1.0.1. Instead, it is recommended that entirely new
projects are created
Software requirements
µC/FS File System for CrossCore Embedded Studio requires CrossCore Embedded
Studio version 1.0.1 or later to be installed to build projects.
Adding µC/FS to a project
When a µC/FS device is added to a CrossCore Embedded Studio project, the CCES
add-in framework executes the following actions





Adds links to the file system files in the installation folder
Adds generated files based on the configuration window settings
Sets up the required toolchain options.
Copies fs_app.c to your project. This file is a copy of a micrium template which
contains funtions for file system initialization. This file can be edited by the
application developer and will not be removed from the project when the file
system is removed or overwritten if it is already present in the destination folder.
Copies app_timing.c to your project. This file contains template time-stamping
interface for uC-FS when not using an RTOS. This file can be edited by the
application developer and will not be removed from the project when the file
system is removed or overwritten if it is already present in the destination folder.
µC/FS for CrossCore Embedded Studio version 1.0.1 contains changes to the files
fs_app.c and fs_app.h which are required to support the new NAND flash add-in. For
this reason it is recommended that all projects start with a new version of these files. If
you already have an older version of fs_app.c and fs_app.h in your project we
recommend that you copy new versions to your project from the path where you
installed µC/FS. The files are located in uC-FS\common\uC-FS\APP\Template.
MISRA-C Compliance Conformance
Checking
The Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA) published a set of
guidelines for the C programming language to promote best practice in developing
safety related electronic systems in road vehicles and other embedded systems. The
CrossCore® Embedded Studio compiler fully supports the MISRA-C 2004 Guidelines,
and can detect violations of the rules at compile-time, link-time, and run-time.
The µC/FS File System for CrossCore Embedded Studio complies with MISRA by
documenting known violations of the MISRA Compliance standard. The violations mean
that µC/FS sources will not compile with MISRA conformance checking enabled, and
any file that includes µC/FS headers will also not compile. The file {µC/FS File System
install folder}\uC-FS\Docs\FS MISRA-C 2004 Compliance Matrix.xls contains the list of
MISRA-C violations by µC/FS.
Known issues with µC/FS™ File System
for CrossCore® Embedded Studio
These are the currently known problems which affect µC/FS™ File System for
CrossCore® Embedded Studio.
TAR-49883 ADI_NFC doesn't support DMA on BF52x
The Crosscore Embedded Studio NFC driver in CCES 1.0.1 uses 32-bit DMA
operations which cannot be used with the NAND Flash Controller on ADSP-BF52x
processors. For this reason, Programmed I/O must be used instead.
In order to use Programmed I/O uC-FS for CCES defines the macros
_ADI_NFC_PIO_READS and _ADI_NFC_PIO_WRITES when CCES 1.0.1 is used
which instruct its BSP to use the Programmed I/O NFC interface. In later versions of
CCES uC-FS will default to use DMA instead. In order to keep on using Programmed
I/O applications can define _ADI_NFC_PIO_READS and _ADI_NFC_PIO_WRITES.
Note that the NFC driver is delivered as part of the CCES product.
µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore®
Embedded Studio version 1.0.0 Release
Notes
What is µC/FS File System for CrossCore
Embedded Studio
µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore® Embedded Studio is the result of a partnership
between Analog Devices and Micriμm to provide a user-friendly programming
environment for µC/FS applications running on Analog Devices' processors. µC/FS™
File System for CrossCore® Embedded Studio provides an integrated environment with
CrossCore Embedded Studio which offers the advantage of an industry-standard IDE
combined with Analog Devices' advanced optimizing compiler technology.
µC/FS is a compact, reliable, high-performance file system based on clean, consistent
ANSI C source code. It supports the FAT file system for interoperability with all major
operating systems.
The memory footprint of µC/FS can be adjusted at compile time based on required
features and the desired level of run-time argument checking. For applications with
limited RAM, features such as cache and read/write buffering can be disabled; for
applications with sufficient RAM, enabling these features improves performance.
µC/FS can access multiple media simultaneously, including multiple instances of the
same type of medium (since all drivers are re-entrant). In addition, a logical device
driver is provided so that a single file system can span several (typically identical)
devices.
Features

Integration with CrossCore® Embedded Studio for Analog Devices Processors
Software

POSIX-compatible interface for file access and directory access

Processor-independent interface

Ease of porting to new platforms

Scalable RAM and ROM requirements

Full FAT support including FAT12/16/32 and long file names (VFAT)

Optional journaling component for failsafe FAT operation
Please contact Analog Devices for more information on purchasing the optional
journaling component.

Support for formatting and the creation of DOS partitions on a device
Capabilities
The primary file interface is the familiar POSIX interface, where Micrium-specific
functions provide the same functionality as the following standard functions:
clearerr
closedir
fclose
feof
ferror
fflush
fgetpos
flockfile
fopen
fread
fseek
fsetpos
ftell
ftruncate
ftrylockfile
funlockfile
fwrite
s_mkdir
opendir
readdir
remove
rename
rewind
rmdir
setvbuf
The µC/FS implementation provides the same POSIX interface, but uses a “fs_” prefix
for each API. For example, µC/FS provides fs_feof(), which is equivalent to the POSIX
feof() API.

Analog Devices strongly recommends installing µC/FS File System outside of the
Program Files directory to prevent possible permission issues related to UAC (User
Access Control). If you have already installed the product under Program Files then we
recommend that you uninstall it and re-install it in a different location.
Note: Multiple versions of the µC/FS File System can be installed on the same system.
Only a single instance of a specific version of the product can be installed on a system.
License Checking
The installation process checks for a valid license for µC/FS File System. If a valid
license is not detected, the installer will start the Manage Licenses utility for entering
and activating a license. The installer will fail in a non-interactive mode when valid
license is not present.
Installation Logging
The installer does not create a log file by default. If you encounter installation issues,
you can generate an installation log file by running the installer from the command
prompt.
Change to the directory containing the downloaded installer executable and run the
following from the command prompt:
ADI_uCFileSystem-Rel1.0.0.exe /v"/l*v c:\temp\installer.log"
License
The installation process checks for a valid license for µC/FS™ File System. Refer to the
Licensing Guide in your CrossCore® Embedded Studio installation which can also be
found in http://www.analog.com/CrossCoreLicensingGuide.

Software requirements
µC/FS File System for CrossCore Embedded Studio requires CrossCore Embedded
Studio version 1.0.0 or later to be installed to build projects.
Getting started with a project that uses the
File System
Adding the File System to a project
Creating a new project which includes the File System
In order to create a project you should follow the instructions provided in the CrossCore
Embedded Studio help. As part of the project creation, the page “Add-in Selection”
contains a list of all the available add-ins for the project that you are creating, based on
the products that you have installed and the processor and type of project selected. You
can see the µC/FS add-ins in the Middleware section under “File System” and then
“Micriµm uC-FS”.
Adding the File System to an existing project
Every CrossCore Embedded Studio project contains a System Configuration file
called system.svc which is located in the root of the project. The file is the IDE's
interface for managing the various prewritten software components used in the "system"
implemented by a project. Double-clicking any system.svc file in a navigation view
opens that file in a System Configuration Utility which allows you to see the add-ins that
you currently have in your project. Clicking on Add allows you to select one of the
µC/FS add-ins in the Middleware section under “File System” and then “Micriµm uCFS”.
Add-Ins
There are two add-ins supported with this release:

uC-FS RAMDisk for Blackfin (1.0.0)

uC-FS SD Card for Blackfin (1.0.0)
When you add an add-in the CrossCore Embedded Studio IDDE makes the appropriate
changes to your project, including the necessary files, links and include folders. The
add-ins can be used independently, or used together in the same project.
µC/FS project structure
When adding µC/FS to a CrossCore Embedded Studio project, the µC/FS-specific files
get place in the system folder. Please do not change this organization. In the system
folder the following structure gets created:

A uC-FS folder
This folder contains any sources and header files which are part of the µC/FS
File System. It contains the folders:
o
FAT, OS, Source
These folders contain the actual RTOS code which should not be modified.

Dev
This folder contains the files required for the devices used by each of the addins selected, including platform-dependant implementation (BSP) files. These
files should not be modified.

GeneratedSources
This folder contains headers and sources generated by the product based on
the GUI configurations. These files should not be modified.

A uC-CPU folder
This folder contains any sources and header files which are required by
Micriµm uC/CPU software. uC/CPU provides a processor-independent
interface to the supported processors and toolchains that is used in all Micriμm
products.

A uC-LIB folder
This folder contains any sources and header files which are required by
Micriµm uC/LIB software. uC/LIB provides a clean and organized
implementation of some of the most common standard library functions, macros
and constants. uC/LIB is required by many Micriμm products including uC/OSIII.

A uC-CLK folder
This folder contains the sources and headers required by the µC/CLK software.
µC/CLK provides the timing functionality required by the µC/FS File System.

A uC-Common folder.
This folder contains sources and headers which are common to several
Micriµm products but that are not part of any Micriµm product themselves.
These include for example app_cfg.h which is needed by all Micriµm
applications.
System view
CrossCore Embedded Studio provides the System view which is used by µC/FS File
System for CrossCore Embedded Studio. Use the System Configuration Overview tab
to add a µC/FS add-in to a CrossCore Embedded Studio project.
To access the System Configuration Overview tab, do one of the following:

In a navigation view, double-click the system.svc file of a project. The System
Configuration utility appears with the overview tab selected.

If the utility is already open, select the Overview tab.
For more information about the System view, see the CrossCore Embedded Studio
help.
Configuration tabs
When a µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore® Embedded Studio add-in gets added to a
project, several configuration tabs get added to the System view. These include tabs for
Micriμm components which are required by several products like uC-LIB and a
configuration tab for µC/FS. These configuration tabs provide an easy mechanism to
generate any macro definitions required by the Micriμm products.
If the µC/FS add-in is used by a CrossCore Embedded Studio project, its configuration
tab includes the following pages:

µC/FS General

FAT

Build Settings

Application General
Look in the CrossCore Embedded Studio help in the µC/FS node under µC/FS tab for
more information about each of the configuration options.
Configuring the SD Card device
The SD Card device uses the RSI interface. This means that the pins related to the RSI
need to be configured on your board before the SD Card device is used. We
recommend using the Pin Multiplexing add-in for CrossCore® Embedded Studio to
configure the RSI driver for use with the µC/FS SD Card device. When selecting which
add-in are used in your application, ensure that the “Pin Multiplexing (1.0.0)” add-in from
the “Recommended Add-ins” section is selected.
Configuring the RSI interface with the Pin Multiplexing add-in
Double-clicking the system.svc opens the System Configuration utility, which also
shows the configuration tabs for each add-in. Select the “Pin Multiplexing” tab to open
the configuration options.
The “peripherals” list displays all the peripherals that can be configured - Enable the
“RSI0 [RSI Module]” tick box to generate the required code in the Pin Multiplexing addin that will configure the RSI.
Configuring the RAMDisk device
The RAM Disk device does not require any hardware-specific configuration. We
recommend that external memory is used, as there is unlikely to be enough memory
using internal memory alone. To enable external memory use the “Startup Code/LDF”
add-in for CrossCore® Embedded Studio, and configure the use of external memory in
the LDF section under the Startup Code/LDF tab.
µC/CLK configuration
µC/CLK is an independent clock/calendar management module, with source code for
easily managing date and time in a product. µC/FS uses the date and time information
from µC/CLK to update files and directories with the proper creation/modification/access
time.
µC/CLK can be used with or without an RTOS. µC/CLK relies on a periodic signal to
increment an internal timestamp, which can either be provided by an RTOS or an
external source.
When not using an RTOS
When not using an RTOS, µC/CLK relies on an external timestamp. The default
configuration provided with µC-FS File System for CrossCore Embedded Studio does
not enable the external timestamp option, so µC/CLK requires changes to be able to
link. To enable external timestamps, use the µC-CLK tab in the System Configuration
utility and enable “include support for external clock/calendar”.
The file system/uC-FS/app_timing.c contains a framework with all the definitions
required for the µC/FS to be used without an RTOS. This file is a template and it must
be modified so that it produces the correct delays and signals required for µC/CLK.
When using µCOS-III
µC/CLK detects if µC/OS-III Real-Time Kernel for CrossCore Embedded Studio is being
used, and includes the correct implementation of the OS-specific sources. In this case,
the default configuration of µC/CLK uses the RTOS clock and timestamps are
maintained using a µC/CLK-specific task.
The µC/CLK task must be configured with parameters that are appropriate for your
application, specifically for task priority and stack size. These fields can be configured
by clicking on the µC/FS tab in the System View, and selecting the “Application
General” page. The priority of the CLK Task should be set so that the task can run
frequently.
Other RTOSs
Like µC/FS, the RTOS interface provided by Micriμm has been designed so that it can
be ported onto any other RTOS. However, the Analog Devices CrossCore Embedded
Studio software only supports the µCOS-III and no-OS environments. The framework to
use another RTOS exists, but requires external software. Please contact your thirdparty RTOS vendor if another RTOS is required.
Initializing µC/FS™ File System for CrossCore®
Embedded Studio
To ensure timely initialization, the IDE adds required code to a global C function
named adi_initComponents(). µC/FS must be initialized after all the components that it
depends on, like pin muxing or the RTOS. This means that µC/FS must be initialized
after the call to adi_initComponents().
When you add any µC/FS component to your project, CrossCore Embedded Studio’s
IDE adds fs_app.c and fs_app.h to the project. These files contain skeleton functions
which can be used to initialize µC/FS but can be modified to suit each specific
application. We recommend that you initialize the file system using the App_FS_Init()
interface in fs_app.c, which initializes the file system and all the required devices. It is
also possible to make direct calls to FS_Init() to initialize the file system.
µC/FS requires timing functionality provided by µC/CLK. This means that µC/CLK must
be initialized before initialising the file system. A call to Clk_Init() must be made after the
adi_initComponents() and before the file system initialization.
Header files
In versions prior to 4.04.01 of Micriµm’s µC/FS, the inclusion of fs.h was sufficient to
include all the required headers for any module that uses the file system. From version
4.04.01 onwards, Micriμm recommend the inclusion of header files specific to the
functionality required, so including fs.h no longer includes types and function prototypes
to support all µC/FS functionality. The fs_inc.h header includes a list of the most
common header files, though it may not include everything that is required.
Examples
µC/FS File System for CrossCore Embedded Studio provides two simple examples
which show how to use the File System, one example shows the use of the RAMDisk
device and the other the SD Card device. Each example is shipped for ADSP-BF609,
and can be used in both Release and Debug configurations.
Notes

The examples use features that can be disabled in the configuration windows.
Disabling any of the used features results in expected link errors.

Double-clicking on a example from the example browser or the system overview
page opens the project in the installation folder without copying it to your
workspace. If you want to modify the example in any way, it is recommended that
it gets copied to your workspace. If you would like to copy the project to your
workspace note that you may have to copy the sources separately. See the
Known Issues section for more details.
Location
In order to locate µC/FS examples you can do the following:

Open CrossCore Embedded Studio's Example Browser which can be found in
CrossCore Embedded Studio under Help. Select in the Product section "Micriµm
µC/FS v 4.04.00 [1.0.0]" for a full list of examples.

Import projects located in your µC/FS installation folder under uC-FS/Examples.
Interaction with other CrossCore®
Embedded Studio software
µC/OS-III™ Real Time Kernel for CrossCore® Embedded
Studio
Although µC/FS File System for CrossCore Embedded Studio does not require an
RTOS, if µC/OS-III is in the application then µC/FS uses some RTOS objects to ensure
its behavior in a multi-threaded environment. In its first release µC/FS requires
semaphores, and 2 task-specific registers if working directory functionality is enabled.
Under certain conditions the API OSTimeDlyHMSM() can also be required.
Common Micriµm Components
There are several CrossCore Embedded Studio add-ins based on Micriµm's products
which share common components. To ensure that the same version of these
components is used by all the add-ins that require them, these components are installed
in a common location which is distinct from the add-in install folders. These common
components are

µC/CPU which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog
Devices\uC-CPU v1.0.0. This installation includes µC/CPU version 1.29.01.

µC/LIB which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog Devices\uCLIB v1.0.0. This installation includes µC/LIB version 1.36.02.

µC/CLK which is installed in %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Analog
Devices\uC-CLK v1.0.0. This installation includes µC/CLK version 3.09.00.
The documentation for these components can be found in CrossCore® Embedded
Studio Help under µC/FS™ 1.0.0 > Components Shared by Add-ins.

Toolchain Options
MISRA-C Compliance Conformance Checking
The Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA) published a set of
guidelines for the C programming language to promote best practice in developing
safety related electronic systems in road vehicles and other embedded systems. The
CrossCore® Embedded Studio compiler fully supports the MISRA-C 2004 Guidelines,
and can detect violations of the rules at compile-time, link-time, and run-time.
The µC/FS File System for CrossCore Embedded Studio complies with MISRA by
documenting known violations of the MISRA Compliance standard. The violations mean
that µC/FS sources will not compile with MISRA conformance checking enabled, and
any file that includes µC/FS headers will also not compile. The file {µC/FS File System
install folder}\uC-FS\Docs\FS MISRA-C 2004 Compliance Matrix.xls contains the list of
MISRA-C violations by µC/FS.
