Probably it does not hang, but you just don't see any console output.
Eventually  you  just  forgot  to  set  the  correct  console  device
(/dev/ttyPSC0) or console speed.

Also, you need a recent version of U-Boot (for  example  99c2fdab  or

Try something like this:

=> tftp 200000 /tftpboot/tqm5200/uImage
=> tftp 400000 /tftpboot/tqm5200/tqm5200.dtb
=> setenv bootargs root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot= ip= console=ttyPSC0,115200
=> bootm 200000 - 400000

Please note that the device tree we have at the  moment  is  for  the
TQM5200 only and does not include support for the TQM5200S.

But probably you just had the same problem - missing or  bad  console
device specification.
