OK cool.  One thing to mention is serial consoles are not always 9600bps,
and this can cause problems if it is hard set.  The way the regular init
system works now is fine for sparcs in regards to handling the speed.

For sparcs, you don't even need to provide any additional boot arguments
to a kernel for serial console as the output redirection is handled by
OBP.
