Bug Description

The mx51evk headless booting stops at mountall and gives following error message on debug serial.

Freeing init memory: 100K
init: ureadahead main process (29) terminated with status 5
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on none,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
       need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so

mountall: mount /var/run [38] terminated with status 32
mountall: Filesystem could not be mounted: /var/run

Adding the following filesystem supports can fix the the problem and get the booting into console.

CONFIG_TMPFS
CONFIG_DEVTMPFS
CONFIG_DEVTMPFS_MOUNT

The patch is here.

John, I confirm that upstart can't work without devtmpfs and it used not to work without devtmpfs_mount either (which gives a boot time saving anyway); could you enable these two? The tmpfs one seems like a good idea, albeit I don't know what problem it solves

I have to enable tmpfs, otherwise it can not reach console either. The debug log tells /var/run is mounted as tmpfs. And I saw the following line in /etc/init/mounted-varrun.conf.

start on mounted MOUNTPOINT=/var/run TYPE=tmpfs
