Loopback mount the filesystem on the host and see if there's anything
interesting in /var/log/messages (or any other logs that look interesting).
Break in (maybe by having inittab have one console run bash instead of getty),
strace a getty and log in on it. See where things start to go wrong.
There's nothing here that's different from a physical box. So, any way that
you would diagnose the same problem on the host will work with UML.
