One note: It would be a lot easier to help you if you posted a bit of
context around your debug reports, like 2-3 lines of serial output
before the hang etc. Plus, just pasting the actual serial output is
easier to debug than writing error messages down from memory.
Detailed reports will give you higher quality and quicker answers.

You did not specify to use serial console for your Linux kernel.
add something like "console=ttyS0,115200n8" to your command line.
