For a serial console use:
append="console=ttyS0,9600n8" in silo.conf or on the kernel command line.

There is also a kernel parameter which can be changed at kernel compile
time (davem already urged debian kernel maintainers to change it):

# Console display driver support

With that I get a clear console output on the serial port without
any garbage.

Hope this helps,
