Autoconf output for the keyboard on my workstation spills over output
from /etc/rc, and worse, over sysinst. It's a problem particularly as
it kills the welcome screen in sysinst, which is the first thing a new
user sees. It also looks really unprofessional.
Have a system where USB devices take a bit longer to attach, or plug in
something just as the system starts /etc/rc
Some possible fixes:
- Maybe use config_pending to hold off starting init until the first
round of device discovery is complete.
- Have sysinst play tricks and steal away the console device.
- Have sysinst run on ttyE1 if possible. While it's kind of a hack it
would make kernel output a non-issue where it can be done.
