SUMMARY:ttya as terminal on sparc 2

I asked how you tell a sparc 2 that it doesn't have a
keyboard or console. Sorry. The answer was in the eeprom
manual page. You use
eeprom input-device=ttya
eeprom output-device=ttya
These are normally set as keyboard and screen. In that case,
the sparc tries ttya for both if it doesn't find them.
Hence, it does manage to boot after a bit of complaining.
