Maybe you can test on the other Parallella prototype board?

It worked with the previous eSDK.  Now the old eSDK's matmul no longer
works (the prebuilt one misses libraries, and rebuilding this old source
code with the new eSDK fails), and the new eSDK's fails as you describe.

I _guess_ the new eSDK's matmul example uses "the new E_DMA_MSGMODE
control mode on E_DMA_DWORD transfers", which requires an updated
BOOT.BIN as Yaniv described here:

I may try that.

I wonder if our inconsistent eSDK and BOOT.BIN versions may be causing
any trouble for the bcrypt code as well.  Probably not.
