But really, just setting "console=ttyS0,115200,8n1" is enough. I use that
on all my embedded boards.

Ok :).

Well, that normally shouldn't happen. At least when upgrading to Jessie,
sysvinit should still be usable and in-place. But you know, we can't
guarantee it behaves as expected in all corner cases. Bugs happen.

There are some, yes, but the core is just "systemd"

So, I'm not sure about the fine-tuning for the serial console. I use standard
settings and just enable it with the kernel command line options above.

However, it might be possible that some very specific serial configuration
might not work as expected, but since I have never tested that, I cannot
give you any advise.

Yes, things are improving constantly. I haven't had any big issues for
a long time. Usually, it's just poor configuration on my side.
