loadx & loady are producing nearly the same numbers on my Armada XP
target for download (slow of cause). This is really strange.

I also tested with "normal" console actions (logging) with higher
baudrates. Here these numbers:

time md 2000000 10000:

115200 baud:
time: 1 minutes, 32.694 seconds

921600 baud:
time: 11.587 seconds

92.7s vs 11.6s -> factor ~8. Which is exactly the baudrate difference.
So at least here I see a speed difference, which means that the USB
UART converter must be working in general. I really have no idea right
now to explain, why this does not any speed differences while

I'm currently struggling to get gkermit working on my Ubuntu machine -
so no numbers here yet, sorry.

Makes sense.
