The miniroot install (the one on root.bin) does not make use of /dev/console
at all for 2.0 kernels, therefore there is no need to symlink it to /dev/tty0.
/dev/console is only used by 2.2 here (see init.c).
And for the base system, it is installed with /dev/console as char device then
replaced with the correct symlink if installing with 2.0 kernel on the target
