[syslinux] isolinux and serial console

I'm trying to get isolinux work with serial console; however, I fail.

My means of testing is qemu -serial stdio -cdrom the.iso; when I use bootoption
'console=ttyS0', the linux kernel has no problems writing to serial and the
serial output does appear in the terminal I've run qemu from, so I believe qemu
is working alright in this regard.

I've also had it working with _similar_ configuration, however, I failed to
repeat such setup. The question is, what do I do wrong in my current
isolinux.cfg [please see attachment]?
