Building Linux kernel with NFS for Zynq ZC706 with ADV7511 support

Hello all,


I am trying to get ADV7511 working with the Xilinx Zynq ZC706 board. The default out-of-the-box SD card works. I was also able to compile the HDL in Vivado and use that system bitfile.


Now, I was trying to use the Linux but realized that it doesn't come with NFS compiled so wanted to rebuild the kernel. I downloaded the source code and built it but am getting a kernel panic. Any pointers appreciated.  My (incorrect?) steps so far:


$ git clone linux-adi

$ cd linux-adi

$ git checkout xcomm_zynq_3_8

$ ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-xilinx-linux-gnueabi- make zync_xcomm_adv7511_defconfig xconfig

# checkbox select the NFS portions

$ ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-xilinx-linux-gnueabi- LOADADDR=0x8000 make uImage

$ cd arch/arm/boot/dts

$ ../../../../scripts/dtc/dtc -I dts -O dtb -o zynq-zc706-adv7511.dtb ../devicetree.dtb

$ cd ..

$ sudo mount /dev/sdc1/ /media/boot

$ sudo cp uImage devicetree.dtb /media/boot


The console of the Zynq board is as follows (the BOOT.BIN is something that works with the original uImage and devicetree). Thanks a lot for reading and your pointers.
