this is incorrect as masking off this bit does not stop interrupts on the
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?

my patch has been submitted to cvs, its been tidied up a bit though so its not the same as the patch on the mailing list.
