I was doing
" console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 fbcon=font:SUN12x22 " expand$ to boot-file
boot int:\vmlinuz

and I should have been saying
" root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 console=ttyS2,115200 console=tty0 loglevel=9
rootwait" expand$ to boot-file

BTW, what's behind the line below?

   d4282c08 l@ 80.0000 invert and d4282c08 l!
