Still not working quite right. How do I set the serial console speed
for pxeboot_com0? It looked like a compile-time option I wasn't sure
where to set. For obvious reasons, I'd like to set it to whatever
speed I'm running my Soekris console at; for equally obvious reasons,
I'd like that as fast as possible.
