Is there any way of getting an early console output on a kernel on an
8260? (running u-boot as bootloader)
Right now, I don't get any console output until after the full driver is
loaded, and that is way too late, since the kernel is hanging on the PCI
init right now, and the kernel log buffer doesn't have the backtrace of
the Oops.

What are the device node numbers for ttyCPM[0..5] ?
