Serial console from initial boot is in fact critical to our ability
to debug user problems. You have answered your own question.
major suckage then :) So, failing that, is there (I'm speaking
theoretically here, I'm not a kernel hacker) some way that the kernel
could grab serial at boot time, but release it when the boot has
finished and the rest of the system is started ? I somehow somewhere
feel that this might be possible :) If it is, would something like that
be considered if someone did the code ?
