Eroor after modified the Linux Partion size

0 votes
i am using ccwmx51js Evk Board, which is running Embedded Linux.
And the UBoot has the default partition sizes like this..

0x000000000000-0x0000000c0000 : "U-Boot"
0x0000000c0000-0x000000140000 : "NVRAM"
0x000000140000-0x000000440000 : "Kernel"
0x000000440000-0x000001440000 : "RootFS"
0x000001440000-0x000020000000 : "UserFS"

in this configuration the Rootfs will support only 16Mb of size.
But mine is about 30Mb so i tried to modify the rootfs partition alone using "flplart" in U-Boot, and i done successfully.

and the modified is
0x000000000000-0x0000000c0000 : "U-Boot"
0x0000000c0000-0x000000140000 : "NVRAM"
0x000000140000-0x000000440000 : "Kernel"
0x000000440000-0x000002040000 : "RootFS"
0x000002040000-0x000020000000 : "UserFS"

But while booting the kernel, i am getting Flash empty at 0x00003ffc to 0x01a380000 like this...

Empty flash at 0x00003ffc ends at 0x00004000 Empty flash at 0x00007f98 ends at 0x00008000 .....
.....
.....
.....

Empty flash at 0x01a1bffc ends at 0x01a1c000 Empty flash at 0x01a37138 ends at 0x01a38000

after that busybox is starting..
what is the solution to solve the problem.
