NAK, I was planning to drop the patch entirely, while its useful in
some cases, it breaks things like plymouth working, as well it will
force anaconda installs to always be text over the serial port.
wandboard and cubox-i for instance boot happily without a console= line
and you get plymouth on the screen when video is initialised. having it
add the console line if u-boot has the console set to serial would be
okay. I think it needs some more thought and careful planning.
Ok, note I had already send the patch to the u-boot list for review
(without your Signed-off-by for now). I've replied to it just now
quoting your reply from above.
Lets discuss this further on the u-boot list.
