I enable and build my kernel with driver (staticly):

Multi-IO cards (parallel and serial) (in Device Drivers-> Parallel port support
)

This is what my board say (in console mode) about serial address:
0x08 COM1 DUART8245 0xfc004500 0x07a12000 0x00000001 0x01effc70
0x09 COM2 DUART8245 0xfc004600 0x07a12000 0x00000001 0x01e107d0

Yes, i enable " Support for console on virtual terminal" but i enable
"Non-standard serial port support" option too...
So i recompile without the last one... and i recompile "with Serial drivers
--->" "[*] Console on 8250/16550 and compatible serial port" perhaps it's
that... And i came back to you.
But, perhaps i've allready tested... i ll check.. it's not a default option ?

I pass parameter directly to the kernel;

Another option i set :
Default bootloader kernel arguments x x x x(console=ttyS0,9600 console=tty0


Thanks

My image seems to be ok...
