The last time I connected to the DB-9 on the back of an Altix,
I was using minicom (I think) and just changed it so it
would interpret LF as CRLF.  I seem to remember something
like LF <--> CRLF on the line.  Don't remember if that was
exactly what it looked like.

Is this something that should really be done by the terminal
and not the serial driver?  I don't have any objections
either way, but I would guess we would want to stay as
close to whatever x86 linux is doing.  I plead ignorance at
this point.
