That's caused a change of behavior in my qemu setup, with this cmdline

root=/dev/sda1 console=ttyS1 console=ttyS0

Before, the kernel logs appeared on ttyS1, and I logged in with ttyS0
(with my setup, ttyS1 is a file and ttyS0 is unix socket). Now, the
kernel logs go to ttyS0. I need to swap the two console= parameters to
restore behavior.

There might be some other problem (in qemu?) though, because adding
console=tty0 anywhere on that cmdline makes the logs appear on both
tty0 and one ttyS* (but only one of them, and the ordering of the
ttyS* matters).
