Boot console on PCI com port?


Is it possible to use a serial port on a PCI card as the boot console? I know that there's little chance of using it if it can't be seen by the BIOS, but on the other hand is there some magic way to get the kernel to use it instead of the default video console?

If not, what other options besides remote KVM do people use for colocated x86 machines which don't have motherboard serial ports?
