This matches the results of not finding a console - FreeBSD 5.3 has
ofw_console, so will use any device as a console, but FreeBSD 5.4 only
has native serial console in the default kernel. To get FreeBSD onto an
E250, I had to install FreeBSD 5.3, cvsup to 5.4 and use a custom
kernel with "device ofw_console".
