Are there any operations may influence WFI instruction?

You can describe heartbeat LED in the barebox device tree just as you'd do in
Linux and barebox will take care to blink it during bootstrap. No need to involve

Shell (connect to UART1,interrupt mode) still works, when I type something, the LED flashes. It seems that system only responses to UART1 interrupt, and triggers the other interrupts respones. I remove wfi instruction from idle task, system runs ok.

barebox on i.MX uses one of the available GPT timers as clocksource.
