The manual (Section 18.104.22.168, EK-KDJ1B-UG-001 - thanks for the tip about that
section, Glen :-) sure makes it sound like it's in software: "Any input from
the console results in an error message to inform the user that the console
is disabled" - I doubt that functionality is implemented in the UART... :-)
