MIPS: IP22/IP28 Disable early printk to fix boot problems on some systems.
Some Debian users have reported that the kernel hangs early during boot on some IP22 systems. Thomas Bogendoerfer found that this is due to a "bad interaction between CONFIG_EARLY_PRINTK and overwritten prom memory during early boot". Since there's no fix yet, disable CONFIG_EARLY_PRINTK for now.
