[Alison Wang] ls1021a uses duart as the default serial port, not lpuart. So
8250/16550 serial driver is used. Let me explain my debug process in detail.
When CONFIG_VMSPLIT_2G is used, I could boot up the whole kernel and get the
print message " Booting Linux on physical CPU 0xf00" after "Starting kernel"
Starting kernel ...
[ 0.000000] Booting Linux on physical CPU 0xf00
But when CONFIG_VMSPLIT_3G is used, I couldn't get print message " Booting Linux
on physical CPU 0xf00". It only hangs at "Starting kernel ...".
Moreover, I add some asm code in __turn_mmu_on to print some simple characters, and
I could get the print characters when CONFIG_VMSPLIT_3G is used. So I guess there
is something wrong with the page tables.
