"Uart pins not muxed in NOLO" would certainly explain my problems. In
3.5.X, output works even in decompressor ("Uncompressing
kernel... done, booting linux"). Where is the code to do the muxing?
Does it need fixing on v4.x?

Is

CONFIG_UNCOMPRESS_INCLUDE="debug/uncompress.h"

right setting for me?

"P" machine runs Hartmann, latest release, and is stable
there... including games. RAM should be ok.
