You have to configure the number of each type of RTEMS object
you want.  You didn't configure any semaphores and probably
didn't link in  the semaphore manager either.

But the bigger question is.. is Ray using the termios console
driver?  I thought he was only using printk() and avoiding the
full featured console device driver and the termios subsystem

This is for someone else.

When it works, I would like to see another BSP merged.
If the hardware is close enough, you might be able to
share a BSP and use a "variant" to change compile time
