I have a small busybox userland that works fine with 2.4.2 kernel, but failed
with the latest 2.4.8 kernel. The symptom is that it is stuck at the
Kernel command line: console=ttyS0,115200 ip=bootp
Freeing unused kernel memory: 4k freed
Algorithmics/MIPS FPU Emulator v1.4
serial console detected. Disabling virtual terminals.
init started: BusyBox v0.51 (2001.07.18-06:43+0000) multi-call binary
Please press Enter to activate this console.
A simple test shows the console is still working, i.e., pressing a key *does*
generate an interrupt and ISR *does* read the correct char value.
I really cannot think of anything else that might make busybox stuck here.
Any clue? Anybody else is using busybox with more recent kernels?
