Kernel halts while invalidating TLB

Hi, I am trying to boot SDK 1.6 kernel in my P1012 board.

The uboot configures TLBs correctly but once the kernel boots, it halts while invalidating TLBs(flush_tlbs at head_32.S file) .

Kernel is loaded at 0x00000000 and uboot configures a TLB for DDR at 0x00000000. The console output is the following:


=> boot

Code is crashing at head_32.S:



     lis r10,0x40

     1:addic. r10,r10,-0x1000

     tlbie r10  <-- Kernel halts after this instruction

     bgt 1b





I don't understand why kernel needs to override current TLB instead of creating a new one.  Has anybody faced a similar problem?

Thanks in advanced,
