I run my Ultra2 serial console at 38400 and it works fine. I gave up on
using the keyboard as ofwcons is pretty lossy and uart(4) locks up the
system once interrupts are enabled. I've been told that the serial
hardware is unreliable above 9600 bps, so cranking it down might help
ofwcons, dunno. Once I finish getting the Ultra1 to work I might try
to figure out the uart(4) problems.
