	The GENERIC kernel warns that if isapnp com and lpt ports are
	defined, the isa versions of those should be changed to com*
	and lpt*.  The same applies to enabling acpi versions of
	those devices.  The comments should be carried over or made more
	Build a kernel with, say 'com* at acpi?', and boot.  Watch
	your serial ports be assigned to com3, com4, etc.
	See above.
