I had pushed further commits to PR #98 8 days ago, restoring the serial 
console, but setting tty0 as the default.  It works well with VirtualBox 
on macOS: I can even login on the serial console when networking is 
broken (only on 7, since 6 doesn't start getty by default - I can add 
it, if there's interest in that). [2]

I was hoping to release a Hyper-V image in 1704, this is the only thing 
holding us back - I would appreciate further feedback on PR #98 (or 
merging into master).
