You probably have the palo param "console=ttyS0" and that's why
it's switching to serial console. Palo documentation suggests
using "console=tty" for auto-detecting the console.

With 0.9.2, if the graphics head were recognized and has a working
STI ROM, I would expect the console to remain on the graphics head.

Caveat: this is from one of the few people who *only* uses serial
consoles on hppa-linux.
