Description of problem:
when debugging issues in single-user mode, STDOUT does not appear on console.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 6.0 Beta 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot, changing 'rhgb quiet' to 'single' at the grub menu
2. at shell, type 'ifconfig -a' or 'ip link show' -> no output, but shell prompt returned
output not displayed
STDOUT to be displayed on console without any need for redirection
'ifconfig -a | more' or 'ifconfig -a 1> /dev/console' does show output on console, but 'ifconfig -a > /tmp/file' does not populate /tmp/file.

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file

# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_morris-lv_root
# initrd /initrd-[generic-]version.img
