Hi Dan,

Thanks for your suggestion. But still I'm using the old source code with the 
patch to pb1550 while I'm trying your suggestion.

The kernel code which I was using to generate the image for Au1500 is working 
After applying the patch for pb1550 the image develops the problem.

Now, when I mrproper and build again, I get the following link failure(which I 
didn't get while build for Au1500)

I doubt this could be the reason why the image not runs on this processor.
Please tell me if it could lead to TLB exception.

I'm also building with the source code. 

Thanks and Regards,
