This part is correct.

However the kernel sets CREAD by default.
sysvinit (and possibly other inits) clears CREAD.
I wish I knew where the breakage actually occured.

And then sulogin/mingetty need to reenable it.

It's not too big of a deal except the serial code doesn't accept SAK's
when CREAD is clear.
