console prints garbage during boot process

during the initial boot process (right after start_kernel calls
console_init), the kernel
starts to blurt garbage to the screen. since i needed a temporary hack to
get me going
i made console_init() init the serial console with {9600, 8n1, no flow
control ...).
although this is the correct setup (since minicom "talks" to the bootrom on
these settings)
i still get garbage. i thought that serial_console_setup() has something to
do with it, but apparently not.

any ideas ?
