Kernel Bring up from 3.14.28

I have downloaded Kernel from below lables.

http://git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/imx/linux-2.6-imx.git/log/?h=imx_3.14.28_1.0.0_ga

I compiled kernel code against our defconfig and dts files. Kernel is not booting I am not seeing any message after "Starting Kernel"

I just observed one thing.  Makefile.boot is no more part of arch/arm/mach-imx folder. Seems it is intergrated to Device tree files. Could you please suggest where to check this information?

Any other pointers in debugging this issue would be  great help.

Currently our board is running on 3.10.17 Kernel Version.

Let me know if you need any further information.

Hi,

I wonder if you tried with the wandboard custom kernel?

Thanks for your reply.

CONFIG_DEBUG_IMX_UART_PORT is configured to wrong Port no 1 i.e ttymxc0. After configuring it to 2 (ttymxc1) which we passed from Uboot. I could see early print logs after that. After that again its hanging at setup_arch.

In start_kernel  -> setup_arch -> setup_machine_fdt:-> of_flat_dt_match_machine -> of_get_flat_dt_root

unsigned long p = ((unsigned long)initial_boot_params) + be32_to_cpu(initial_boot_params->off_dt_struct); 

// Accessing initial_boot_params was causing Kernel to Freeze because in new Kernel initial_boot_params was not getting Initialized.

I tried to enable prints in arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.s by enabling macro DEBUG.

Enabled CONFIG_EARLY_PRINTK and CONFIG_DEBUG_LL. But not able too see any UART prints. Could you please suggest how to enable early prints.

These are the Parameters passed from Uboot.

Where Makefile.boot info is moved in device tree?
