	If I type "consdev com0" at the (i386) bootblocks it causes the kernel
to boot with the console set to the serial port.  Once I've got a /dev, 
shouldn't anything written to /dev/console end up going out that serial
port?  It doesn't seem to work.  However, /dev/tty00 works as expected.
Also, xconsole sees stuff written to /dev/console.  Is this how it's
supposed to work?  I thought I remembered it behaving differently.
