Even worse - I just noticed that you "poll" on an uninitialized data!
core_done[0] contains garbage the first time you go into the while() test.
Thus it never really reads the result buffer. You should assign 0's to the
core_done[] array before going into the while() loop.

Note that the reason you have garbage there, as opposed to the device side
structure, is that in the host side you declared "result" as an automatic,
local variable - which is not initialized.
