I've CC'd Chen who wrote that wiki page.

I don't know if it is harmful but ",115200n8" is meaningless for hvc.

earlyprintk doesn't take an option on ARM and there is no "xen"
alternative. (Again probably not harmful).

Only you can interpret this, since it needs the symbols from your
kernel. Run gdb on your vmlinux (the ELF version at the root of the
buikt linux source tree) and type "list *0xc02c52e8" and it should tell
you where it blocked.
