For what it's worth, I have recently completed a port of U-Boot to a 
custom board with no serial port in the design.  It does, however, 
have a functioning ethernet port, which we set up to use as a 
netconsole.  Sure, most of the informative boot up messages are 
missed, but to paraphrase Wolfgang, "get a BDI 2000"!  ;)

Good Luck,
