The Qube2700 boot hangs because the old "prom" style console is
unconditionally enabled. Drop the "prom" console code from the build. It
would only be used if no "console=" line was supplied and in that case
the current 8250 code defaults to using ttyS0 at 9600 anyway (assuming a
port exists).

Ok, applied - but that leaves the unused arch/mips/cobalt/promcon.c around.
Guess it should die as well?

Yep, probably. It was handy for debugging very early boot, but it's not worth cluttering the tree with it.
