That would imply that the kernel acquired from here:

does that. Surely, if it does, somebody else would have noticed before me?

I just tried booting the same kernel off tftp and if I do:

setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200
tftpboot 0x6400000 uimage.bin
bootm 0x6400000

The same thing happens - the server gets as far as decompressing OK, and 
then the console gets garbaged.

If I don't setenv bootargs with the console setting, the console stays 
silent after the kernel decompresses, which implies that the problem is 
indeed connected to the kernel doing something wrong with the serial 
console settings. Is there an alternative kernel I could try?
