Own kernel from bora 3.1 repository with mmc patches from
http://intr.overt.org/n800-sdhc-kernel/ and some small (non-invasive) 
custom hacks. The mmc patches are fairly invasive but just to the mmc layer.

I don't have the device now but I'll check details. I definitely 
remember about having to disable it in inittab more times but that may 
be because I have more copies of rootfs (1 in flash + 3 on mmc) so it is 
sometimes hard to track changes :-) But still, getty over ttyS0 should 
not be enabled at all. I never played with various flasher flags on my 
N800 yet.
