The way inittab.install redirects base-config </dev/console
>/dev/console can fail in at least two ways:

1. If the user switches virtual consoles at just the right point during boo=
   base-config can end up running on some other virtual console than the
   first. I have seen this during testing.
2. If base-config dies (or is killed), init will respawn it, and it will
   spew all over the current virual console, which may already be logged
   into. Not good.

I think it should use >/dev/tty0 </dev/tty0, similar to how it uses an
explicit device for serial installs.
