Just one question on this one, what do you expect to happen, or how does this work when you use a different serial port for example on a board that has a real serial port and an FIQ port? It was not obvious that there was a path to check if the port you are registering is an FIQ enabled port and then call the kgdb_register_nmi_console at that point.
