The workaround for that is simply to remove the serial console from
bootargs_base. After doing that, the hang disappears.

  • dependson set to 788

Based on the described symptoms, this is almost certainly the 2.6.24 incarnation
of the problem described in #788. Discussion is underway on the kernel ML
regarding the best of several possible approaches to kill this bug. Until then
removing the console clause from command-line arguments in the boot env
variables is probably a reasonable solution.

(Unless one of the OpenMoko? powers-that-be can see fit to reinstate the 2.6.22
fix that's been in the OE for a while, until such time as this can be fixed
correctly?)

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

A temporary workaround has been committed to the OM svn repo and is in recent
versions (certainly 4102 and beyond, but probably much earlier). For the
moment, this problem can be marked as resolved (the workaround may not be
acceptable to upstream, but the workaround can remain until replaced by an
alternate solution).
