   Two questions:
   1. Does the kernel built from the unmodified JORNADA720 config file

No, the unmodified JORNADA720 kernel also hangs.

   2. What happens if you send a break signal after the hang? (assuming
   you have options DDB in the kernel config file)

It is a hard hang, completely unable to break into DDB.  The hang is
apparently caused by sacc_intr not always clearing the GPIO line from the
SA1111 to the SA1110.

This does, in fact, allow my 720 to boot.  Thanks...

Just for the record.  My Jornada 720 has product number F1816A ABA,
copyright 2000 by HP.  It claims to a 'Handheld PC 2000', on the
background of the MSWIN-CE screen and is in English.  If I tell hpcboot
that I have the Japanese version of the Jornada, it will boot onto the LCD

Sometimes, hpcboot seems to get confused right after it loads the kernel.
I never get the second popup message.  I can usually get things working by
flipfloping the serial console checkbox and booting, I'll usually get the
second popup then.  I can then answer 'No' and select the console sort I
want, select or unselect the serial console option.  It seems that after I
get the second popup once it will present itself again.
