Hi Chris,
    It seems that my PPC405 V2Pro system is hanging in the function 
early_init, in arch/ppc/kernel/setup.c. Using LEDs, I've been able to 
determine that the following line seems to be where it dies:
memset_io(PTRRELOC(&__bss_start), 0, _end - __bss_start);

Looking in, I see that __bss_start is 0xC013F000 and _end is 
0xC014DA60, with a whole bunch of stuff in between.
Any idea what might cause this?

I saw Ur posting on the net I am facing the same problem with my EP405 
target . Did you resolve the problem if so can you please provide me some
