Yes you can use any serial port for debug. But if you use the
devboard_lx-R2_0_0 software it must be changed in three places:
kernelconfig, the /dev/console symlink (in Makefile) and the agetty
argument in files/etc/inittab. In the deboard_lx-R2_1_0 software you
only need to change it in kernelconfig and the rest will follow (the
files target in Makefile reads debugport from kernelconfig and creates
/dev/console link, agetty uses console link).
