[U-Boot-Users] CONFIG_SILENT_CONSOLE & early printf's

Having enabled the above config item, I'm silenced all late boot and 
Linux messages.

Any clues as to the 'correct' way to silence the early boot (i.e. prior 
to defining stdin/stdout handling) messages? Should I set the silent 
flag at the point of reading the baudrate (in libppc/board.c) and obey 
it in common/console/put[s|c] when stdout is not defined? I'm not sure 
if the global (gd structure) environment is large enough when running in 
flash to do this...

Environment is mpc8xx system running 1.0.0 u-boot.
