I'm pretty sure I tried both with -DDCOMPRESERVE (which I understand
should make etherboot use the LB settings) and -DCONSPEED=115200 (which
is what lb is set to).

If you (or anyone else) can confirm you're using 5.4.1 without problems
with LB on a serial console then I'll go back and try again, but really
I just wanted to know I wasn't spending time debugging something that
was known not to work.
