Hi,

The console is already chosen by stdout-path and earlycon would use it
as well, so no need for the address. It should be just "earlycon" if you
want to enable it unconditionally.

Also, why did you use different serial for console?

However the question is, are you sure you want earlycon on every,
including successful boot? On most of the boards we do not enable by
default. If developer needs, he can choose it for example via U-Boot
"setenv opts earlycon".

However it's a development kit so it could be enabled on default...

Best regards,
Krzysztof
