The hint lines for uart flags are unnecessary but harmless since FreeBSD 10.

The image does have a "live" mode where it runs entirely in ramdisk, but
nothing will let you set the serial port to the second port. You will have
to use these settings to use the second port.

You could try just booting to single user mode and run the tunefs. I don't
remember if that works or not for the boot volume with FreeBSD 11.
