Saying a serial console is not kernel dependent is inaccurate and
misleading. The part that displays the kernel boot messages is
absolutely kernel dependent. I think you mean that you can get messages
even earlier by, as a seperate step, configuring a serial console in
the boot loader, right? And that is a good point. Although, you can also
configure those messages to go to a serial synth and hear them as well.
I don't know if that works with all serial synths but I know it works
with a doubletalk LT and a tripletalk.
