the garbage may be your stage0/1 output. We've had trouble in the past
with cheap uarts glitching badly when things like baud rate change. I
actually don't think you need to worry about this garbage. I think
you're doing very well indeed.

printk works, so your stack is working. So car is probably working.
You ran initram. CAR is definitely working. You returned from initram.
This is great.

Your biggest problem may be that you are not really getting initram
right, which is why there is no stage2 output.

Oh, yeah, you are in trouble:
LAR: Compression algorithm #1 (lzma) used
Decoding error = 1

ram is no good. You need a test at the end of initram. But CAR is
definitely solid I think. You need more debug in initram.

You're close.

I am going to be presenting CN700 at SC 08 I hope thanks to your fine work!
