allwinner automatically outputs to the serial console without a boot
argument to set it, that step is not necessary.
I guess just one of those things you have to know. So far, all I am
working with are allwinner boards.
Will add this to my notes.

What part of the message? the dracut part is a message saying that an
x86 only opton for firmware patching is not set. it is just noise on
non x86 but could be useful on x86. the other messages are from
mkimage, for historical reasons we make wrapped kernels and initramfs's
which we do not actually use.
So basically I just ignore this. But it seemed that dracut ran a very
long time before it spit out this information and finished up. Like it
was not happy about something and finally gave up.
So I will ignore this and keep plugging along.
