README.hardware for mpc8315erdb incorrectly specified a null modem serial cable
I noticed this while beta testing 1.2. but patch is against master (latest commit: bcd4d14425cadc5bd6296f59f14733e8c39c49dd). Instructions specified a null modem. This isn't the case. A straight serial cable is required. I verified it with my own setup and Freescale's user manual. Signed-off-by: Robert Cochran<> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
