If you have a USB2 debug cable and the laptop has a USB2 (EHCI)
debug port directly underneath the host controller (no hubs
inbetween) this should work ("console=dbgp" and some suitable
"dbgp=..."). However, besides USB2 being quite old and typically
laptops coming with newer ports / controllers nowadays, I've
not come across a laptop where the debug port wasn't behind some
hub ...
