Please remove the alternate console entry from /etc/inittab for alpine-virt
The last line in /etc/inittab for alpine-virt (ttyS0::respawn:/sbin/getty -L 115200 ttyS0 vt100) should really not be there.
It generates a loop of incessant dmesg noise when installed on VMWare esxi and no doubt other virtual installs too.
That line is not present in other builds such as alpine-extended.
This report is based on the current version available on your website dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v3.8/releases/x86_64/alpine-virt-3.8.0-x86_64.iso
