/dev/console is a symlink to ttyS2. Change the following line in devboard_lx/Makefile:

	ln -sf ttyS2 $(prefix)/dev/console


	ln -sf ttyS0 $(prefix)/dev/console

and do "make files" and "make images".

The rescue port is only used if the rescue code (os/linux/arch/cris/boot/rescue/)
doesn't recognize the partition table. It shouldn't happen, and if it does the
yellow LED will flash like mad.
