Just a quick note, from the success I've just experienced with the
LinuxBiosV2 on my Tyan S1832DL board just now, console_init seems not to
be taking place at all.  The DFI P2XBL post codes go in a regular
session "0x80 > 0x88 > 0xE7 (or whatever)" and takes a span of several
seconds.  Linuxbios boots in milliseconds.  I should be seeing tons of
stuff coming out on the serial port, but nothing.

Right now, I've got both my boxes setup with Bios Saviors and a plugin
PCI Siliconkit Postcard.

Pretty flexible with which one I tackle, or both.
