I think trying to do both is a recipe for confusion. You say you set:
HAL/diag serial device driver: /dev/ser1
but assuming you are referring to CYGDAT_IO_SERIAL_TTY_CONSOLE, this is
just the name of the device that the io/serial layer _exports_ as a tty
device based on top of haldiag. It doesn't actually change anything about
where haldiag goes *to*.
Instead this option should be left as /dev/ttydiag, otherwise you will get
two entries in the device table that claim to be /dev/ser1 which would be bad.
But even then haldiag isn't really intended to be used with the
interrupt-driven serial drivers. You can maybe let it share the same
device but with haldiag still using its own driver in the HAL - that might
not be too bad, although obviously output may overlap. You'll also
probably get bogus tx complete interrupts, although hopefully whatever
serial driver you are using should ignore those.
If you really want to use the interrupt-driven driver for diagnostic
output, you could try editting infra/current/src/diag.cxx, specifically
diag_write_char, to do this. Although some care is needed - you will have
to eliminate anything that tries to do any diag output before the serial
driver is initialized and interrupts enabled, otherwise it may jam waiting
for an interrupt that never happens, or if the driver isn't initialized
yet, it may do who knows what depending on what your hardware requires to
be set up (you could of course cheat by just testing in your serial driver
if the device has been initialized and interrupts enabled).
