stopping the kernel from hogging /dev/ttyS0?

A quick question. Since RS232 ports are at a premium, how do I stop the
kernel hogging the /dev/ttyS0 port as the default console as it boots ?

i.e. without recompiling the kernel, is there a 'bootparam'-like setting in
a /etc/init.d file or similar which I can then reroute the console to some
other port or /dev/null ?
