Except there is a known problem of dropping/missing interrupts with
running serial consoles with certain Digium boards. You also have the
same problem if you use a framebuffer console.
If you truly want it headless with a serial console without that problem,
stick a PC Weasel board in it (http://www.realweasel.com).
