When booting Monta Vista Linux on Memec board

By looking at the source code, I found that in the
init/main.c the problem came from the calibrate_delay
function: jiffies was not incremented (jiffies was
always equal to 0).

Have anyone get the similar problem or any experience
to fix it?

I take it that by "crashed", you mean it hung?  If so,
it sounds like you aren't getting any timer interrupts.
