Thread-topic: Init not working in 64-bit kernel
        I'm porting a 64-bit linux kernel provided for a mips4
architecture to a mips3 target board. The existing NFS root file system
has been compiled for a 64-bit mips4 architecture.
If I mount this file system, the init does not run.
After mounting the filesystem, I get the following messages and the
kernel hangs.

Looking up port of RPC 100003/2 on
Looking up port of RPC 100005/1 on
VFS: Mounted root (nfs filesystem).
Freeing unused kernel memory: 132k freed


I also tried to mount a 32-bit working NFS root filesystem.
Still I get the same problem. I thought 32-bit binaries will execute
fine in 64-bit kernel.

Do I have to recompile the binutils and glibc for my target file system?
