Description of problem:
After performing a serial console install, firstboot-text.service doesn't honor "console=ttyS0" and instead displays on tty0.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Follow steps at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Anaconda_User_Interface_serial_console
2. Make sure to perform a @default package installation (using VNC may be required to select more packages)
3. Complete install, and boot system (ensuring that console=ttyS0 is a boot arg)
firstboot-text starts on tty0, and ttyS0 (serial console) hangs waiting for firstboot to complete.
firstboot-text should honor the console= kernel argument, and display over the serial console when booting with "console=ttyS0"

# Impacts the following Fedora 15 beta release criteria (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_15_Beta_Release_Criteria)
"When booting a system installed without a graphical environment, or when using a correct configuration setting to cause an installed system to boot in non-graphical mode, the system should provide a working login prompt without any unintended user intervention when boot is complete, and all virtual consoles intended to provide a working login prompt should do so "
Actually, this impacts the Alpha release criteria 
"When booting a system installed without a graphical environment, or when using a correct configuration setting to cause an installed system to boot in non-graphical mode, the system should boot to a state where it is possible to log in through at least one of the default virtual consoles"
mgracik: I see this fix in firstboot upstream git , but I'm not sure if this is also fixed in firstboot-1.118-1.fc15 ? If so, can you modify the proposed update to include this bug#?
