    It's not impossible, but the hard part will be creating a naming
    infrastructure so the user can specify the appropriate serial port if
    there are multiple (non-console) tty devices present on the system.

    My suggestion would be to get it working using a userspace daemon, and
    then putting in the kernel code to open the serial port without a file
    system. It certainly can be done, with roughly the same techniques
    that are used to mount the root file system in the non-initrd case.
