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[01].  Is this sort of uglyness still needed?

Also, a bunch of the console detection code could be simplified if 
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
a symlink?
