    When pre-configuring /etc/inittab.new to start getty on the a serial console,
    check for the appropriate entry in /dev rather than trying to identify the
    hardware via /proc/cpuinfo. Since the introduction of Flattened Device Tree,
    detecting hardware is harder since the hardware info is either missing or
    in different locations. We are now checking for the presence of /dev/ttymxc0
    and /dev/ttyAMA0, and falling back to ttyS0. The serial device entry will only
    be present in /dev if the hardware is present, and it's a pretty safe bet that
    that serial port should be used for the user to login locally.
    Thanks to Exaga for helping test this.
