You can get the serial console if you manage to get hold of a
development "jig" --- a HW adapter that connects to the battery slot of
the N900 and provides a serial connector.

Another way would have been having some startup script that sets up the
USB networking (e.g. load g_nokia kernel module and do "ifup usb0") in
every boot --- if you'd have that, you could simply plug a USB cable and
connect over ssh.
