Haven't seen this one, no. I'm using a hardware console on the serial
line most of the time (though I still haven't found the proper
configuration and it's hardly usable for anything advanced making use
of terminal features).

It looks a bit like the serial driver crash on reboot which Martin
Michlmayr fixed a couple of months back by backporting fixes from the
sunzilog driver. But I think this one made its way into the kernel, so
it must be something else.
