Unable to connect properly to NodeMCU custom build powered by Lua 5.1.4 on SDK

See original GitHub issue

I am running your tool on a Mac. nodemcu-tool devices gives me this

[NodeMCU] Connected Devices | Total: 1
	  |- /dev/cu.wchusbserial1420 (undefined, undefined)

Any subsequent command fails, e.g. nodemcu-tool --port /dev/cu.wchusbserial1420 --baud 115200 mkfs

[NodeMCU-Tool] Do you really want to format the filesystem and delete all file ? (no) y
[NodeMCU-Tool] Unable to establish connection - No response detected - is NodeMCU online and the Lua interpreter ready ?

However, I can connect to the terminal nodemcu-tool --port /dev/cu.wchusbserial1420 terminal

[SerialTerminal] Starting Terminal Mode - press ctrl+c to exit

This is the boot log
