/etc/rc.boot/0setserial will only set up the first two ports,
because the ttyS2 and S3 have less standard locations (especially
IRQs), and also S3 and 0x2e8 may clash with some video cards.
The configuration IS in there though, it just has to be uncommented.

0setserial here configures and autoIRQs all four ports
correctly (3F8/4, 2F8/3, 3E8/5, 2E8/7).
