Depends on the UART you are using. Is it one of the already supported
UARTs? If so, you should not have to do anything. Just include the
correct packages, and open /dev/ttyS0 or what every its called.

If its not supported then you need to write a serial driver. The
manual contains information about doing that.

cyg_hal_plf_* refer to functions called via the Virtual Vectors into
redboot. The serial functions in redboot use polled io. You want to
include the real serial driver package and the serial io package. You
can then open the device with open and use read/write etc. Or use
cyg_io_lookup() etc.
