Well, certainly you won't get TGA console if you boot with console=ttyS0.  I
thought we had TGA support working in the dailies, though.  .... hmm, nope,
never been enabled.  Let's fix that now. :)

Serial console support certainly shouldn't have changed lately anyway; so if
you're hooked up to ttyS0 and not getting console, it does sound like a
serial config issue to me.
