Hmm! If you can't include setserial and call it on bootup, then I'm not too 
sure. You could try changing the definition of STD_SERIAL_PORT_DEFNS in 
include/asm-i386/serial.h... of course if your arch isn't i386 you'd look in 
whatever the corresponding directory is.

I wonder if there's a kernel command line parameter for setting that...
