A few things:

1) You definitely need to have a "default" I/O range (i.e. 0); 2e8 is likely 
to conflict with another serial port and therefore fail.

2) It doesn't matter that much, but you generally shouldn't set IO16 on a pure 
8250-like serial device.

3) The config entry number, at least, doesn't seem likely to work on the A555.  
Otherwise it doesn't look so bad, but I'd prefer to make the A555 code 
emulate the replacement CIS exactly.  (Actually, I was thinking about adding 
a way to insert an actual replacement CIS structure rather than our 
pre-parsed version.)
