addSerialDevice is a privileged command that configures the system to use
a serial device.
addSerialDevice configures a serial port for a terminal if its first
argument is terminal, an input device such as a tablet or space ball if
its first argument is input, or midi if its first argument if midi.
When a device is configured for a terminal, the line in /etc/inittab for
the serial port is configured to run getty(1M). When a device is
configured for an input device, a link is made from /dev/input to the
serial device for that input device. When a device is configured for
midi, a link is made from /dev/input and the startmidi command is run.
addSerialDevice can not be use to add modems. Use addModem(1M) to add
