help with kernel panic in qemu (arm)


So i have been cross compiling a Linux kernel with a busy box file system and testing it with qemu. i am also building my own gcc cross compiler. here are the tools and Linux kernel used:


the target arm is a cortex a9 so the Linux kernel was configured with the vexpress_defconfig. busybox was configured with just defconfig and as a static binary. when qemu boots with this

qemu-system-arm -m 1024 -M vexpress-a9 -serial stdio -kernel zImage -initrd rootfs.img.gz -append "root=/dev/ram console=ttyAMA0 rdinit=/sbin/init user_debug=31"

this is what i get back where the panic occurred
