ttymxc0 device. If so, then the reason why you cannot login is that
you don't have ttymxc0 listed in /etc/securetty.

The file comes from target/generic/target_skeleton/etc, but you can
simply edit it under project_build_arm/uclibc/root/etc and rerun make
to regenerate your filesystem image.

I don't see any mention of /dev/ttymxcN in Documentation/devices.txt
in the kernel sources? I take it that the serial driver isn't in the
mainline kernel?

I take it you mean /bin/sh not /dev/sh?

Strange. And you do get output from init and login with the same
filesystem if you boot without init=/bin/sh?
