[Buildroot] Serial port loging

I am building a buildroot environment for the CM-X270 board. I have it
defined to use "arm" "xscale" and "EABI". I have added a getty for
ttySA0 into the inittab and now I get a login prompt on the serial
port. I see that the "root" login has a blank password field int he
/etc/shadow file so I expected it to just login in when I enter root.
Instead it pauses for a few seconds and displays the login prompt
again. I then set up the shutdown login to run reboot. When I tried
this I got an error that indicated it was not being ran as root so I set
the owner ID of shutdown in the /etc/passwd file to be 0. Now when I
try to login as shutdown it also pauses for a few seconds and then
displays the login prompt again.
Thanks for any info,
