The EFI boot maintenance menu shows this in the "Console Output
Device(s)" menu:

    * Acpi(PNP0501,0)/Uart(9600 N81)/VenMsg(PcAnsi)
      Acpi(PNP0501,0)/Uart(9600 N81)/VenMsg(Vt100)
      Acpi(PNP0501,0)/Uart(9600 N81)/VenMsg(Vt100+)
      Acpi(PNP0501,0)/Uart(9600 N81)/VenMsg(VtUtf8)
    * Acpi(HWP0003,0)/Pci(0|0)

Yes ... though to expand from my recent discoveries ... until I added
Mark's patch I could boot without a "console=something" option.  Now
it seems to be required.
