Now we have X working, it would be nice to have the serial port working
again (kernel panic when you do echo "a">/dev/ttyS0)

The panic occurs in sacom_filltx, and it is a reset exception. The only
recent modification to the serial driver I can see was its move to
arch/arm. This was done on july 19th.=20

I wonder if this is the cause of the break, it seems a bit too old.
Anyone precisely noted when the serial port stopped working?
