linux kernel - installation accessibility improvement

If a boot: prompt times out and the device on which it timed out on was 
presumed by the kernel to be the console; it would be helpful for braille 
display users and those with another computer if the boot message and 
boot: prompt could be sent out over a serial port by default and have an 
attempt be made to take a response from that serial port as well.
This if it could be done would be  analogous to how Apple designed Tiger 
10.4 and subsequent operating systems when those install.
