ttyE0 is the actual "physical" first terminal, whereas console is an
"indirection" to ttyE0 (if you booted off with a serial console, for
example, console would point to the serial port instead of ttyE0).
You have enabled getty on both devices, so you get two getty instances
and the input gets confused.  You need to disable one or the other.
