FIX: The display does not start on a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device

Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device.
  • The run-time image of the device is located on a Binary Rom Image File System (BinFS)-formatted partition.
  • The run-time image includes some graphic components.
  • You set the COMPRESSION flag to OFF in the CONFIG section of the Config.bib file as follows:
    CONFIG         COMPRESSION=OFF
  • You try to start the device.
In this scenario, the display does not start on the device.
Cause
This issue occurs because the kernel tries to read an incorrect number of bytes from the "Extended Uncompressed XIP" section. Therefore, the graphics components are not loaded.
