Make sure no other application (e.g. agetty) is reading from 
/dev/ttyS0. Also check if /dev/console is a symlink to /dev/ttyS0. In 
that case it's probably used as the kernel debugport (can be changed 
or turned off in kernelconfig) and that also makes it stdin, stdout 
and stderr of init and it's children.
