The patch was wrong. It was taken from here:
This patch does not initialize VGA when CONFIG_CONSOLE_VGA==0 and

The patch should have been taken from here:

The attached patch corrects the head revision.

I tried to build the broken compilations using the default procedure
"buildtarget && make -C <directory>" and I am confused:

~/linuxbios/targets>./buildtarget technologic/ts5300/Config.lb && make
-C technologic/ts5300/technologic_ts5300
completes without an error for both r2586 and r2587 (dies looking for
the payload).
~/linuxbios/targets>./buildtarget technologic/ts5300/Config-abuild.lb
===> ERROR: Option __COMPRESSION__ undefined (missing use command?)
for both r2586 and r2587.

I conclude that it brakes for unrelated reasons.
