The failure is on Soekris net48xx (I am testing net4826, specifically).

Typically, the boot either hangs or resets immediately after Grub attempts to boot
the kernel, after:

  Booting `OpenWrt'

If I: 
  a) use the serial console to 'edit' the boot option, then launch with Ctrl-x;


  b) edit (e.g. by mounting /dev/sda1 at /mnt and then 
     vi /mnt/boot/grub/grub.cfg) grub.cfg to remove the first two lines:

       serial --unit=0 --speed=19200 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
       terminal_input serial; terminal_output serial

then it boots and runs mostly normally.  There may be a clock problem,
as the boot seems slow.  The bootlog after employing option (b) above,
looks like this:
