I don't have a K210 board for verification.
But it is OK to run in AE350 board after applying your series.

After check about this commit "common/board_r: Remove initr_serial
wrapper", it seem shall not affect anything.
It just change to call serial_initialize directly.
Only I can think about maybe it is a cache problem.
Just like sometime we add a printf, then the problem will be walk around.
