I have never booted via mop, but I assume the process is the same
as via tftp, where you boot like
boot 3/tftp console=ttyS2
BTW, there seems to be a bug in the serial console code which
occurs when you have the firmware console on a graphics card
but run linux with serial console, so switch the firmware console
to serial port (setenv console s) before booting.
The PMAG-AA is unsupported due to a rather simple reason: the guys
who wrote the framebuffer support do not have one (and an appropriate
monitor). Do you know what kind of video signal the PMAG-AA emits?
Is this a plain "normal" analog video signal with 1Vss, that can be
displayed by a "normal" multisync monitor, or is this some kind of
"digital" TTL-level signal?
