By now various fixes for this issue have made it into testing and 
unstable, so I believe that the daily Debian installer builds (for 
example, [0]) should work correctly on your machine and add a getty
line for serial console in /etc/inittab.

If you could confirm that the issue is fixed, it would be appreciated.
