The other problem is you're looking at the wrong tree for this, which
I'll get into further down.  But in the galileo tree, it's:
if [ "$CONFIG_MOT_MVP" = "y" ]; then
   define_bool CONFIG_GT64260 y
   define_int CONFIG_SERIAL_CONSOLE_BAUD 115200
if [ "$CONFIG_USE_PPCBOOT" != "y" ]; then
   int 'Serial Console Baudrate' CONFIG_SERIAL_CONSOLE_BAUD 115200

So the MVP uses 115200, and possibly even DINK does, and anyone else
gets to pick or assumes 9600.

No, because right now the CPC700 and CPC710 systems don't know how to
setup a serial port for early debugging via ppc_md.progress().

Can you be more specific?

Why?  The GT-64260 stuff is under heavy development, and between
gt-64260 problems and board problems (and possible processor issues)
having a seperate tree in which to try and hammer things out between the
folks working on it seems useful.
