U-boot supports usb serial console that enables to use it without need of serial cable. Since serial cable is an add-on for beagleboard, having this support available reduces the need for more cables and hardware. This also serves as the base to add DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) support that provides fast firmware download to the board without need of ethernet or MMC.
