What exactly do you mean by this? Create serial getties even when the 
install is not done over serial console?

Which serial port would you want to use for that? What happens if there is 
not another computer connected to that serial port but some other device?

If an install is done over serial console, we already do keep the serial 
getty, so I really don't understand what you are getting at here.
