    Old versions of /sbin/init are broken and clear CREAD. Most getty's (except
    mingetty) do the right thing. I saw the change at 2.4.2 -> 2.4.3. I
    don't why some people have managed to avoid it for longer periods of
    time.

    The great mystery is how /sbin/init managed to work in 2.4.2....
