SubjectRe: [patch v2] Fixes and cleanups for earlyprintk aka boot console.

Would this explain why recent version of GDM don't find the keyboard
properly when you boot with a kernel command line of:

kernel ... console=tty0 console=ttyS1,96008N1

until you stop and restart GDM? This was filed under Debian bug
#406457 (see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=406457)
and I could never figure it out until I removed my serial console line
at one point.

I'll have to try this patch out and let you and the GDM 2.16.x
developers know what happens.
