I've just started using 2.4.6 on both a Cobalt Qube 3 and Raq 4R (which
use serial consoles), and they seem to be fine... although if the console
isn't plugged in then it causes all sorts of problems so I've hacked
around the kernel to allow the console to point at null...

I'm just about to upgrade to 2.4.8-pre2 if it all works...
