    I disagree. "proc does not exist yet" - the only time that applies is
    long before userspace as active.

    As I've said already, having a console on the same port as your application
    program is just asking for trouble. All bets are off - the kernel _will_
    corrupt your data stream in random places.

    Don't do it - it will _NEVER_ be reliable.

    Never, ever, mix kernel consoles with application serial ports.
