== console via SMBus ==
Not all boards have an accessible serial port, but all boards with socketed RAM have a somehow accessible SMBus (used for reading the SPD-EEPROMs), which can be used very early in the boot process. As a device to receive the logs for example a beaglebone black or a cheap stm32 board with the i2c-star firmware can be used. The console via SMBus isn't that much slower than a serial console and ways faster than the speakermodem output.
