+                <title>Description</title>
+
+                <para><filename>systemd-getty-generator</filename> is
+                a generator that automatically instantiates
+                <filename>serial-getty@.service</filename> on the
+                kernel console <filename>/dev/console</filename> if
+                that is not directed to the virtual console
+                subsystem. It will also instantiate
+                <filename>serial-getty@.service</filename> instances
+                for virtualizer consoles, if execution in a
+                virtualized environment is detected. This should
+                ensure that the user is shown a login prompt at the
+                right place, regardless in which environment the
+                system is started. For example, it is sufficient to
+                redirect the kernel console with a kernel command line
+                argument such as <varname>console=</varname> to get
+                both kernel messages and a getty prompt on a serial
+                TTY. See <ulink
+                url="https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt"><filename>kernel-parameters.txt</filename></ulink>
+                for more information on the
+                <varname>console=</varname> kernel parameter.</para>
