Re: [PATCH] fix serial console on LinuxBIOS

Does Linux bios only allow for two serial ports? Are theres ports
addresses hard coded into
Linux BIOS?

I also creating all the machine.h for one ifdef is a little much. But
it may be needed. The
ifdef in serial.c should be changed to

<then do this>
<do what everyone else does>

Also what I don't understand about the current code is that it only
allows for serial ports
that have address 0x0400 and above (I'm guessing that is the c
trickery that is going on
here) when using addr[unit]. And you declare addr is 0x0400.
