This is most likely the feared FUTEX issue again. Please see
http://www.denx.de/wiki/DULG/ELDKInstallationHangs  for details.

The only workaround we can recommend so far is to update your host
system and install more recent versions of the Linux kernel and/or
the glibc C library (assuming such are available for your distro; if
not, falling back to a previous version may help, too).

This is only needed for the installer, the problem does not happen
with the regular use of the ELDK.

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
