hmm I'm a bit confused about your fix. I didn't actually run it
but from how I read this it still initializes the serial 
console even if -noserial is given?

  Uart *com = 0;

  if(strstr(cmdline, " -nokdb") || strstr(cmdline, " -noserial"))
      com = Kernel_uart::uart();

shouldn't uart() be only called in the case -noserial is not given?
So you must move the com line down a little bit more.

Definitely not! I like it, but I am a little bit weak when it comes
to c++ object initialization...

Unfortunately I will probably have to bother this list with more
questions soon since I'm doing a college project about fiasco/drops.

Thanks, Fabian
