Sorry, I meant ttyS0 vs ttyS1.  Usually people have a line in their
inittab for respawning an agetty over serial.  How do you usually
setup/spawn your agetty?  I suppose for testing purposes you can just
run an agetty on the command line, e.g. agetty -L 115200 ttyS0 vs.
agetty -L 115200 ttyS1 to see if an agetty can show up.

Also, you may want to check the config output from bmc-config to see if
the baud rate for the SOL is setup correctly.  This may need to match
the baud rate of your serial redirection too (most motherboards don't
need it/require it, but maybe some do).
