I'm using kernel 2.6.24 now (before I used 2.6.21-rc4). I do see the
console messages on the framebuffer device.
console=ttyS0 root=/dev/mtdblock0 rootfstype=jffs2 rw
video=au1100fb:panel:KERN_AU1100 tsdev.xres=320 tsdev.yres=234
If I omit console=tty0, then there is no output on the framebuffer
device or the serial port. I also tried setting the I/O address and so
on, but no luck.
