We were using a slightly different kernel (2.4.5 + patches), but we saw a
hang in console_write when we didn't have our Baud Rate Generator clock
frequency correct.  In the version we were using, the numbers in
embed_config() seemed to indicate that Hz were desired, but after grepping
around, we saw that some parts of the kernel wanted Mhz.  Once we fixed
that, we got console output and things worked.

Hope this helps,
