the emulation is broken, in fact SCC is not emulated, just traced but the kernel does not seem to be really crashed... it just acts as if the
console is not present...

I now that some unixes needs tty lines in /etc/init to bring console. The problem here is that we don't have a working system to compare. Since Uniplus may have a terminal on serial B, it would be interesting to see what happens on this port on real hardware, also, it will be interesting
to trace if data are sent to this serial port (with the emulator).

 (and it crashes there on real hardware as well, so that is
