I have not seen anything suspicious in the logs. But i think you haven't set 
up the debug hardware in your cortex m4. You must switch off the powerdown of 
the jtag interface in wfi. You can put this in your openocd startup script. 

See http://nuttx.org/doku.php?id=wiki:howtos:jtag-debugging for some details.

Best regards
