Bug Description

Run this command:

$qemu-system-arm -kernel ./Ubuntu/ARM/Calxeda\ Highbank/vmlinuz -initrd ./Ubuntu/ARM/Calxeda\ Highbank/initrd.gz -machine highbank

And you are met with the monitor console (see attached screenshot). Typing "Help" immediately fills the tiny window that is created but there is no scroll-back to find out what the help is actually saying.

Making the window full-screen simply scales everything and is effectively useless.

(I don't even want the monitor console, I want to see the kernel boot, but I can't find any help by typing "Help")
