Thanks. Sorry for the delay, but here is a new version of the script. It 
now uses the device from "chosen" and fixes the problem of the newline 
after the "co:" line.

Here is another thought. Could you test if creating a getty line using
/dev/console just magically works? Given the fact that the installer does 
not need any special setup and uses /dev/console, that might just do it. 
It would remove the need to figure out exactly what type of virtual 
console is being used and that would simplify the patch a lot. I suspect 
the alternative attached script might just work.
