I know, but look at drivers/char/console.c, you don't need
CONFIG_SERIAL_CONSOLE to be defined, it will always call
rs_cons_hook() if CONFIG_SGI or CONFIG_SUN_SERIAL is set, and
in arch/mips/sgi/setup.c serial_console is set if
prom_getenv("console") returns "d" or "d2".

Maybe it should be changed to be use CONFIG_SUN_SERIAL and implement 
function serial_console_init().
