	Several Intel-based machines allow BIOS redirection to the serial port,
but only offer this at speeds of 19200 or 57600 baud.  The Intel STL2
motherboard is one such example.
	Obviously, in this case, the best thing to do is to also run the
FreeBSD console at one of those two speeds, however /etc/gettytab lacks a
definition for a 3-wire 19200 baud console.

	Try to run a getty on a 3wire serial console at 19200 baud.
