Thanks for the clarification. I have been wondering why my log messages
weren't being printed once I encounter the pagefault. This provides an
explanation to my question. I've removed all the messages before core
component has started within bootstrap. I'm stuck at the pagefault part.
(as I have mentioned in my previous email)

I've only made changes in the board_base.h file only. I haven't made any
other changes. However, in contrast to the earlier emails, where I have
used UART2, I discovered that we should be looking at UART1 on our board.
I've just changed UART_1_MMIO_BASE and UART_1_IRQ values to the ones
mentioned in the iMX6 reference manual for UART1 in the same file itself.
