This causes mixed effects for me, a regression on the RPi2 using the
pl011, but fixes the issue on the RPi3. Both my RPi2 have serial
console and playing with the enable in config.txt doesn't seem to have
any effect on whether they auto boot or not but with it commented out
I seem to get more random chars.
