Thought you did that from the beginning.

Get "patch-04-getty-inittab" from

This will start getty and you will get a login prompt
and after a login this problem does not exist anymore.
Maybe you have to update to the latest busybox from that
server too, as I have not tested is with the default login
that is used by getty.

A demo:

Axis Developer Board 82 release 1.91
Linux 2.4.22 on a cris (ttyS0)

AxisProduct login: root
Jan 14 15:46:34 AxisProduct login[238]: root login  on `ttyS0'
[root@AxisProduct /]238# (while true; do cat /proc/meminfo > /dev/null; sleep 10; done) &
[root@AxisProduct /]238# jobs
[1] + Running                    (while true; do cat /proc/meminfo 1>/dev/null; sleep 10; done)
[root@AxisProduct /]238# kill 251
[1] + Terminated                 (while true; do cat /proc/meminfo 1>/dev/null; sleep 10; done)
