my cpu is MPC860, use u-boot-1.1.4, linux-

i use the "tftp 300000 uImage" command download kernel image,

then use the "bootm 300000" command boot the image.

i found the bootm cmd entered the /arch/ppc/kernel/head_8xx.s, stop at the instruction "rfi".
is it right? after the instruction, where does the code go normally ? what should i do now?


 .globl __start
 mr r31,r3   /* save parameters */
 mr r30,r4
 mr r29,r5
 mr r28,r6
 mr r27,r7

 /* We have to turn on the MMU right away so we get cache modes
  * set correctly.
 bl initial_mmu

/* We now have the lower 8 Meg mapped into TLB entries, and the caches
 * ready to work.

 mfmsr r0
 ori r0,r0,MSR_DR|MSR_IR
 mtspr SPRN_SRR1,r0
 lis r0,start_here at h
 ori r0,r0,start_here at l
 mtspr SPRN_SRR0,r0
 rfi    /* enables MMU */
