I should have put a note in the commit msg... I did try this on F10 and it 
works fine on a machine with no serial port.  Tested by creating a fake 
node with no serial ports on it and seemed to work.

So I think perhaps w/ F10 this may be ok.

After you build an F10 node via Alan's scripts give it a shot.
