Those are not needed at this point unless you are running with
copyback data cache enabled.  I don't think the kernel normally
sets this mode (in head.S) because you can run with the standard
distribution files and libraries.

Normally, at this point I find the console device isn't working
correctly.  That is, the NFS server isn't properly handling things
in /dev, the symbolic link of /dev/console is wrong, or the
/dev/console node itself isn't correct.
