 *  The PDC console is a simple console, which can be used for debugging 
 *  boot related problems on HP PA-RISC machines.
 *  This code uses the ROM (=PDC) based functions to read and write characters
 *  from and to PDC's boot path.
 *  Since all character read from that path must be polled, this code never
 *  can or will be a fully functional linux console.

/* Define EARLY_BOOTUP_DEBUG to debug kernel related boot problems. 
 * On production kernels EARLY_BOOTUP_DEBUG should be undefined. */
