Last time I tried, serial console worked fine, as long as I did
not need the framebuffer. But since the raison d'etre for this
machine is as an X-Terminal, I have no real use for it without
I think I will try a late -current snapshot again soon.
How will a serial console configured in the PROM interact with the
com driver? (I think I only have one serial port at my 425s.)
