This arguably belongs to the Kernel Hacking section (or its CML2
equivalent).  It isn't useful (and in fact will be highly frustrating)
for anyone else.

---cut here---

The ARC console is a low-level console device using the ARC firmware
for output.  This is useful for debugging, especially if there is no
driver for the serial ports.  You cannot use the ARC console as a
general serial device.  Unless you have a specific requirement for
this functionality, you should not select this option.
