[U-Boot-Users] C function call in Linux kernel

I check the structure before I posted this question. I also tried to include 
u-boot.h. But still no luck. The kernel is always stuck at the first C 
function call.

Actually before the early_init in head_4xx.S is called, the board_info 
structure is not used, so changing the stucture doesn't seem to be able to 
solve the problem. Did I miss anything?
