I have noticed that some hardware do not have a serial port.
e.g. Thinkpad X40 and mac mini.
However, you can access a serial console through uplcom(8).
As of OpenBSD 3.5, /etc/ttys
ttyU0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" vt100 on secure
If you can show boot messages through a serial console, is it feasible
to do so through a USB-serial interface?
i.e. boot> set tty uplcom0
switching console to uplcom0
