CCing other people.

I see same problem in qemu with 3.19-rc1 kernel when doing DT 
boot. In qemu I'm using direct booting from OneNAND (X-Loader --> 
NOLO --> kernel) without U-Boot. After NOLO load & boot kernel I 
do not see any other output from serial console. Also on qemu 
screen there is no new output (just NOKIA logo from bootloader).

I do not have this problem when doing legacy/board code boot with 
3.19-rc1 kernel, so this problem is related to DT.

Kernel 3.18-rc1 worked fine for both DT and legacy boot.

Can somebody look what broke DT booting?
