Because you specified 'debug=mem' on the command line, you also need to
specify 'console=tty0' or you won't get a console. At least, that's what
Geert said on the 10th of August, plus he also asked you to try it with
that last friday :-P

It does seem a little strange. This never used to be needed with older
kernels. Perhaps some extra flag needs to be set in the debug console
struct to prevent this from being the 'default' console or something?

Kind regards,
