The only difference between the inittabs was that the lines for vc1
through vc6 were commented out.
I don't believe you can do keymaps and consolefont on sparcs as a serial
console uses the keymap of the program handling the remote end of
the serial connection. Also it doesn't seem to have the the ability to
handle fonts, though I have not extensively looked into it.
