Probably the "best" way is now -S in boot.config, since it means that
you don't have to recompile and you only have to change it in one

Note that the instructions in will still apply -- if you
reinstall boot blocks compiled with BOOT_COMCONSOLE_SPEED=115200, the
loader will automatically pick that up as well.  You're right though
that the handbook should document the preferred way of accomplishing
