I've done some poking around with the driver and found that the line
cp = getpropstringA(node, prop, buffer, sizeof buffer);
returns a null string to cp. When I examined the full length of buffer
I found that it was just full of garbage. I'm still digging my way
through function calls to figure out where things are breaking down.
In the meantime, can someone give me an example of what the cp string
should look like for the serial console on ttya?
