For the record, I am right now dumping large quantities of junk at 19200
baud (lacking anything faster that I can trust to connect to) to a 16450
on my krsuty 386-20, and I'm not getting *any* silo overflows.

This is not to say the com driver doesn't have problems, but the biggest
problem that affect{ed,s} it, namely interrupt latency, has largely been
fixed at this point.

Clearly a faster CPU and/or buffered ports can handle several of these
at once with no problems.
