Sorry, but the kernel only recognizes ttya and ttyb (and usb-serial) as
console= values, not ttyc.
It's been a very long missing feature on Solaris x86, but became less
important as the number of motherboard serial ports has reduced over the
years, and ISA-bus serial cards became unusable (no ISA-bus slots anymore).
Can you disable ttya (com1) in the BIOS, and then reconfigure ttyc
(com3) to have the i/o address and irq which were associated with com1,
so it looks like com1 (ttya) to the OS? (IIRC, 0x3f8 and IRQ 4)
