Yes, that's actually what Michael suspects. The \0 characters confusing
the LDOM serial console. I will try adding the hacks you suggested to
gain more test data.
I have also tested to reproduce the issue on older SPARC hardware and it
doesn't affect the Sun Fire T2000 and according to one user in #sparc,
it also doesn't affect his Sun Fire V215. So it seems to be a bug in the
firmware of the SPARC T5 server.
I am reaching out to Oracle people and see if they can maybe try reproduce
this issue. Maybe they can issue a firmware update to fix the problem.
