Hi Poul-Henning,

I have the following issues with serial on today's -CURRENT:

1) If booted without -h in boot2 (/boot.config), I cannot get
   getty(8) working on serial ports (sio), no "login: " prompt
   appears on the other side.  Two cu(1)'s see each other though.

2) If booted with -h, as most people are doing, but without
   the recently added -S option to boot2, serial console
   works in 9600 bps as advertised, but despite std.9600 in
   /etc/ttys, the speed is set to 115200.

My configuration is pretty much GENERIC.  Rumors are that these
issues aren't new.
