   Also, if your system comes with an MP/ECI/Manageability card, please
be sure to follow the documentation in the Linux Enablement Kit to
select one, and only one, serial port for a serial console.  Otherwise,
there's a good chance you'll have firmware output up until the kernel
loads, but won't see anything beyond the loading of kernel and ramdisk
messages from elilo (it'll go to the other serial port).
