#StackBounty: #linux #openwrt Linux stops booting after eth0 link up. How to make it show more log?

Bounty: 50

I compiled the latest OpenWRT with Linux kernel 4.4.7 and flashed it into a Netgear WNDR3700v2. Here’s the boot log from serial port.

It hangs here for a few seconds then reboots itself, over and over. What should I do to know what happened there, since the log provides no more than this?

By the way, it boots fine if I replace Linux kernel 4.4.7 with 4.1.20.
