When the init process fires up, it opens /dev/console as the
console output device. A default SGI workstation installation
file system will have /dev/console bound to the major/minor device
node of the graphics display console. If you want to run with a serial
console, you must therefore change this to bind /dev/console
to the serial port. You can do this by doing an explicit mknod,
or by linking to the appropriate serial port device node,
which is usually /dev/ttyS0.
