 I tried using the SysRq hotkey sequence on a serial console -
3.11.0-5-powerpc-e500mc system, by issuing a " break " and the system
immediately wedges after displaying "SysRQ : HELP : " using both "Putty"
and "Teraterm"  terminal emulators. I know the system is dead because my
ssh sessions stopped too. .
