Right, but I think our L2 system controller *does* molest the output
(and the 2.6 console driver relies on this behavior).  I've filed a bug
with our system controller group to make the behavior of the L2 and L1
system controllers consistent (I believe you're using an L1), which I
think is the proper fix.
