Beagleboard HandheldsMojo no serial console

On first boot on Handhelds console (installed using instructions from: http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardHandheldsMojo) the serial console doesn't appear to be setup. To set it up mount the SD card on your PC and add a file at /etc/event.d/ttyS2 with the following contents:

# ttyS2 - getty
# This service maintains a getty on tty6 from the point the system is
# started until it is shut down again.

start on runlevel 2
start on runlevel 3

stop on runlevel 0
stop on runlevel 1
stop on runlevel 4
stop on runlevel 5
stop on runlevel 6

exec /sbin/getty -L 115200 ttyS2

also add ttyS2 to /etc/securetty
