Well, you're trying to change the console, which is common to all
boards, so I'd try looking in /common/console.c.

Then after a quick scan, I'd see "CONFIG_SILENT_CONSOLE" mentioned.
Then I'd run "grep -r CONFIG_SILENT_CONSOLE *", or maybe just #define
CONFIG_SILENT_CONSOLE in the afore mentioned C file.
