I was thinking about that.  I agree completely that my Supra modem will
never be a viable console.  However, the GVP IOExtender card has two
serial ports which could use a slightly modified version of this driver
(very slight modifications - different offset in the card address space
and a different baud rate calculation).  I could definitely see wanting
to use that as a console.

Plus, I need to hook into ipl6, and I really don't think I can do that
from an LKM, since I had to add code to locore.s to get the in-kernel
version working.
