Oh wait! I get it now. Pressing a single key in the minicom xterm and
waiting for it to display in that same minicom xterm made me realize
that on the key press it's sent to the fpga, the lights change and
then it's echoed back to the minicom xterm. What I don't understand
now is why there is no output from the ./versa_ecp5.py --load --fpga
