Okay -- I'll file a PR this morning when I get to the office.

I'll include Bill's patch.

Two Minutes?! Yikes!  What's it doing?  Some kind of hardware probe that
times out?

Are you doing installboot -o console=com0,speed=0?

I have the same issue with my Soekris 4501.  I'm not sure when this started
(I don't reboot this thing often), but it certainly wasn't the case when I
initially set it up.
