Does your kernel boot OK on real hardware?
(ie, is a kernel with LPAE support expected to boot on a CPU like the
A9 which doesn't have LPAE?)
Also if your config/kernel command line don't turn on earlyprintk it's
worth enabling this as it usually gets you better diagnostic messages
for early kernel boot failures.
