I didn't know there was a "default" baud rate for Linux. I think the lowest
I have ever seen is 9600, but I certainly wouldn't call it a default. It
seems every one of the boards I have uses something different,
The debug console serial port rates are either provided by passing some
bootloader information to the kernel or by a kernel command line option.
Either one is locally configurable.

It shouldn't be a hard-coded value. It should at least be the standard Linux
command line option. Bootloaders should simply use the port as it was
configured by the boot rom.
