I had not taken the time to read this link as thouroughly as should have
nevertheless, I think the config is right, as the serial console is selected
with "-h" in /boot.config (from memory, the machine is at work ...) and all
*other* expected messages from the kernel ("dmesg") and the rc scripts are
correctly displayed on respectively the serial and video console.
what struck me is that, from all the startup messages, just the messages
from /sbin/init are displayed only on the video console
