Right, this is how it looks like.

Data written to /dev/kmsg and all kernel logs were always displayed
correctly. Also data written directly to /dev/ttyAML0 is displayed
properly on the console. The latter doesn't however trigger the input
related activity.

It looks that the data read from the uart is delivered only if other
activity happens on the kernel console. If I type 'reboot' and press
enter, nothing happens immediately. If I type 'date >/dev/ttyAML0' via
ssh then, I only see the date printed on the console. However if I type
'date >/dev/kmsg', the the date is printed and reboot happens.

Right, good catch. For comparison, here is a 't' sysrq result from the
'working' serial console (next-20220429), which happens usually 1 of 4
