The CONFIG_SWAP_IO_SPACE was set to Y, but I don't even see it using
xconfig or menuconfig. So I set it manually to n into .config file and
then did a compile - I am using buildroot. But somehow the value always
comes back to y after I type in command "make". The kernel image still
messes up the console after the console is handovered from early printk
to really ttyS01.

Thanks.
