On the subject of serial console... Anybody know if the sparc
is still broken wrt serial console? The old busybox init.c
checks if console==/dev/tty[ab] and then remaps things to
/dev/ttyS. Is this sort of uglyness still needed?

I can be assured that somebody has done a:
rm -f console
mknod -m 622 console c 5 1
Do the boot floppies now have /dev/console as a device instead of
