I'm not sure, as I say.
Yesterday I have wait about one cigarette length and captured 5MB of 
(0x03da) = 0xff ;) before stopping the test.
But the screen comes not completly up.

But think about the udelay(xxx) tests with the inTree emu, with a time 
of 250 for each function and I guess the inb function is called most, I 
have to wait about 5 minutes for a complete initialization.

I think the printf stuff takes a longer time ( like 500us) that means 
that a whole run takes for example 10 minutes or longer.

> So it works when you enable above debug and wait long enough?

It could, but I don't know it. I will try it again and wait longer 
without capturing the output.
