You can specify multiple "console=" kernel cmdline params.  On my
machines with out-of-band serial, I have the console on both the first
terminal and the serial port like this:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.7.1.el5 ro root=/dev/lvm_main/dom0_root
console=tty0 console=ttyS1,115200

You should be able to do something similar with "console=tty0 console=ttyS0"
