All debug is on Serial port 2 (/dev/ttyS2) i.e. COM2 on the developer
board. Use a null modem cable and tools/sermon (default is 115200 8N1).
In th devboard_lx-R2_1_0 software you only need to change the kernel
debug port (using "make xconfig" or "make menuconfig") if you want all
debug (and serial login) to be on another port.
