Flashed micropython, but the ESP32 keeps rebooting.

dear everyone,
I wanted to use the micropython as an embedded lib. I managed to build a ESP32 port of MP into a static .a file and linked it to my ESP32 firmware.
But when I flashed it, the board keeps rebooting. I don't have a debugger, so I try to commented out lines of code to see which line caused the rebooting.

In my main function I called the follwoing:

Code: Select all

#define MP_TASK_STACK_SIZE (16 * 1024)
void mp_start()
    size_t mp_task_heap_size = heap_caps_get_largest_free_block(MALLOC_CAP_8BIT);
    void *mp_task_heap = malloc(mp_task_heap_size);

    volatile uint32_t sp = (uint32_t)get_sp();
    mp_stack_set_top((void *)sp);
    // Initialized stack limit
    mp_stack_set_limit(MP_TASK_STACK_SIZE - 1024);
    // Initialize heap
    gc_init(mp_task_heap, mp_task_heap + mp_task_heap_size);
    // Initialize interpreter
If I commented out mp_stack_set_limit(MP_TASK_STACK_SIZE - 1024); and mp_stack_set_limit(MP_TASK_STACK_SIZE - 1024); and everything below, the board won't reboot. If everything else is commented, only either of those 2 lines presented, the board will infinitely reboot.

the printed message before rebooting is like:

Code: Select all
