Right. I'm currently working on a patch for linux to enable early printk
for Arm.

For the moment it's doesn't impact the Arndale board because this range
is already mapped to a physical address.
By the way, I think vpl011 is useless with Stefano's patch series for
SMP. He moved xenvm out of versatile express platform.
