Yuck.  That's not how to use find!

The simple way to write what you're doing above is

  find /dir -exec grep ttyS0 {} \;

though I myself would eliminate all the forking and search only files

  find /dir -type f | xargs grep inittab

I agree with the other poster that searching for ttyS0 is probably a
waste of time.
