The inittab entry named "s0" exits with errors in too short intervals.
It's a "respawn" entry.

I think this will likely cause it as there's apparently a getty set up
to listen on the serial line #1. Most likely, that device doesn't exist
(yet) at that point. Probably compiled as a module?

I've never seen this before (but I'm not using serial console), but I
think it may be from agetty, too.

So you'll want to check your inittab or kernel config, depending on
whether you want a serial console or not.
