    Personally, I'd really like to see /dev/ttyS0 be the first detected serial
    port on a system, /dev/ttyS1 the second, etc. Currently there are plenty of
    different serial hardware with all their own drivers and /dev entries. For
    embedded systems with serial consoles, and also across architectures, this
    is a pain since the filesystem and namely /dev/inittab has to be adjusted
    for all different types of UARTs. This is not the case for every different
    type of NICs and that's a good thing.
