high register from firing.  The correct way of doing this is to have one pic
for both registers.
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?

I don't have cvs write access so I am relying on someone with write access to submit it.

I submitted a bug report a couple of weeks ago (with the patch included), I'm not sure what the turnaround time for someone to look at it will be.

I believe it to be a clean solution but I guess its up to someone else to decide that.
