With DEBUG_LL, you dont get any prints "automatically". You need add
printascii() calls where you need. I use the attached patch which
patches printk() calls with printascii()[1]

Adam, if you still cannot get it to work, one problem could be that the
DT size has increased and its being overwritten. You could look at where
you are loading various binaries. Or append the .dtb to zImage and
switch on APPENDED_DTB config in kernel.
