Thanks for the hint.
I am able to load the kernel now. It just executes commands very slowly.

One question for the irq_routing table(is that what you mean by irq.c?).
The getpir util generates a routing table by looking at the memory
config of my "developing" machine. How's it related to my target

Any document I can reference? This link mentioned on irq_tables.c doesn't work.
