Default UART error since 1.0-8762 loaded

Running the 1.0-7664 driver gave me the following error at startup
WARNING: terminal emulator: VIS_CONS_REV 2 (see sys/visual_io.h) of console fb driver not supported

Found that I need to switch to a more recent version of the NVidia driver to
eliminate it, so I switched to 1.0-8762. Indeed the error dissapeared, but
now I get an error in the asy driver:

May 26 06:36:48 nero asy: [ID 267298 kern.notice] asy0: UART @ 3f8 scratch register: expected 0x5a, got 0x00
May 26 06:36:48 nero asy: [ID 702181 kern.notice] Cannot identify UART chip at 3f8
May 26 06:36:59 nero asy: [ID 267298 kern.notice] asy0: UART @ 3f8 scratch register: expected 0x5a, got 0x00
May 26 06:36:59 nero asy: [ID 702181 kern.notice] Cannot identify UART chip at 3f8

Any idea to solve this ?

Default Re: UART error since 1.0-8762 loaded

Others with the M2 have gotten rid of this message by going into
the BIOS and disabling the serial port, since there isn't one.

As an aside, are you certain this message only shows up with
1.0-8762 loaded?
