For the last few days I see the following messages.

The kernel is compiled with "magic key" to support reboot. the "magic key" key sequence is 'ctrl-alt-prtscn(SysyRq)' then with one of the letter in the '(' ')' so somehow your serial input is transmiting the "magic key" key sequence.

wow

you can say that from that message?

I am going to remove my jtag and see what happens

The stange thing is that the JTAG has alway been connected but it only started recently

Also aprt from these message nothing seems to happen. The plug doesn't reboot

The "magic key" sequence require all together four keys in order to happen, right now it looks like only 3 keys press down and the other key(s) is not one of the action key that is why it pop the help messages. I am no sure it is even possible using serial port from keyboard can generate these keycode. you are correct to disconnect the jtag connection and see that help.
