Kernel hangs after enabling early printk

Dear all


We have a custom board based on imx6 running 3.10.17. We wanted to debug an issue during kernel boot-up. So we enabled Early printk & low level kernel debug option in the kernel configuration. But when we boot the kernel with these options enabled, we are able to see nothing after the 'Starting kernel...' print. This happens only after enabling these options. Any idea if some other configuration is missing associated with this ?
