Serial Port output slows down VM

I have a linux VM, with a kernel command-line saying console=ttyS0,115200
With no serial port enabled, or a disconnected serial port, there are no problems. As soon as I redirect the serial port to a local file, the guest slows down significantly.
Booting the same guest using VMware Player (with the serial port also redirected to a file) does not show such a large performance penalty.
Alternatively, is there a faster solution to get /dev/console output onto a file on the host?
