I need to check that. I do specify the serial terminal parameters
"console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200". The coreboog image doesot include the
VGA ROM so serial console is the only way for me to check it.

I am sure the Geode LX Frame Buffer driver is not part of the booting kernel
so the VGA will not litup.
