And you shouldn't need it today. You pointed out an error in the patch
which I will correct. The drivers/Makefile needs to be changed, instead
of the drivers/usb/Makefile.

The dbgp code was changed in the patch series such that it works with or
with out the usb subsystem and with or without the earlyconsole=keep,...

All the code in the drivers/usb/early would work this way as well. As
an example, I have an experimental UHCI serial driver that can be used
via the earlyprintk.

Thanks for the feed back. I'll fix this for the v2 of the patch series.
Jason.
