It probably isn't hanging, it said it failed to open the console,
this means you won't see any more messages on the console until you
fix that problem.

First, make sure you have the latest code from CVS. There are
fixes in the 68328 serial support for consoles. There has been quite
a bit of change in CVS since the patch was cut if you are using that.

Then make sure your dev console is correct:

        mknod dev/console c 5 1

You shouldn't need a new genromfs.

Looks close, you just need to sort out that console failing to open,
which I suspect is an old serial driver. I could be wrong.
