[parisc-linux] [PATCH 2.5] More serial console hack...

Hi all,

Until then, I couldn't get a serial console to work on my C100 when
running 2.5 (2.4 is OK). So I finally had time to look at it...

I just put in the same hack 8250_pci has... Looks horrible, but at
least it allows me to get a working console.

I suppose the real problem is that console_initcall is being called
much too late in the boot process, which leads to all those
PA-specific hacks in 8250*. Is there any plan on how to solve that ?
