I found that tasklet_hi_action() seemed to call NULL pointer.
So I tried to put following code (I guess this is wrong fix)
into the function;

	if (t->func == NULL) {

And the system initialization moved on, but it hung at INIT execution.
Anyway, I feel this problem might be related to the timer change.
