First guess is that you're not getting any system clock interrupts.
This would prevent the clock tests from working, as well as any of
the others that require multiple threads to be scheduled.

If 'context' doesn't work, you have fundamental scheduling problems.
I'd get it fixed first.  Then try and see if interrupts work at all,
etc.  GDB is a handy tool for this.
