Dear all:
  I'm working on Toshiba TX3927 RISC Processor Reference board.During 
development I met a problem.Can someone give me some good suggestions?
  Let me describe the problem in details:
  TX3927 board cann't boot up via NFS.It will halt at 
  VFS: Mounted root (NFS filesystem).
  Freeing unused kernel memory: 44k freed 
and the reset switch on the TX3927 board cann't work anymore.
The kernel is linux-2.2.13-20000211.tar.bz2 with Toshiba TX3927 patch,
the NFS root file system is declinuxroot-990611.tgz.
I've checked /var/log/messages and find sentence like this:
   authenticated mount request from
so I think NFS file system works well.Can someone give me some 
good suggestions to solve this problem?

These are serial port output:
