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.
