This wierd message is eCos trying to talk to the GDB that it expects to
find on the serial line.   It's saying "INFO:<cy..." but in hexadecimal.

It will continue if you acknowledge the GDB protocol $O packet by typing
'+' once for every $O packet.

eCos is probably working correctly.

You need to either a) configure your application build so that it does not
use GDB protocol for diagnostic output, or b) load it into the board using
GDB, that way GDB will be there for it.
