You sent this patch to the port-arm mailing list a while back.   It hasn't been 
committed to the tree.   It definitely fixes the serial port bug (it works on 
the Dreamplug as well as the Sheevaplug, not surprisingly).   The kernel seems 
to work the way it did before aside from that.   So was this not committed 
because it's not a clean solution (I'm not qualified to judge), or just because 
nobody got around to it?
