have you tested it? console=tty1 doesnt work, console output still goes
straight to ttyS0. cmd_line is probably not yet set, my cmdline contains
alot of stuff, but only the first word was printed with

        printk("%s(%u) cmd_line is %s\n",__FUNCTION__,__LINE__,cmd_line);

in set_preferred_console(). So strstr(cmd_line, "console=") does not
trigger. Does it just not work for me?

USB is for mice, FireWire is for men!
