CONFIG_SERIAL_AMBA_CONSOLE: Support for console on AMBA serial port

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SERIAL_AMBA_CONSOLE:

Help text

Say Y here if you wish to use an AMBA PrimeCell UART as the system console (the system console is the device which receives all kernel messages and warnings and which allows logins in single user mode).

Even if you say Y here, the currently visible framebuffer console (/dev/tty0) will still be used as the system console by default, but you can alter that using a kernel command line option such as "console=ttyAM0". (Try "man bootparam" or see the documentation of your boot loader (lilo or loadlin) about how to pass options to the kernel at boot time.)
