 Well, the console device was not specified at the Linux's command line 
and the kernel currently does not query REX variables to infer which 
device to use.  Please retry with "console=ttyS2"; you may specify line 
parameters as required, too.  That may be compiled in if you run out of 
the BBU RAM space (which only allows up to 37 characters for kernel 
arguments).

 The output you got was produced with the early console which uses REX 
primitives.
