  Thanks for the response. But my concern is how do I get output of
LinuxBIOS on the serial. Can I disable the service processor output by doing
a platform after logging into the SP?
I am not sure if the LinuxBIOS code itself is running. Is there a way to
confirm that, other than checking the serial?
