Thanks for the help John. You pointed me in the right direction and I
found the problem. After the base install using the latest development
images posted in Marcel's Attic, the serial ports remain unconfigured.
However, when upgrading, a configuration script runs that detects the
proper UART type. In its unconfigured state, /etc/serial.conf specifies
the UARTs as one of those long lost 16450's. Since the UARTS in my
system are 16550A's, I changed the 16450's to 16550A's in
/etc/serial.conf and everything started working. Before potato,
setserial detected the UART type automagically every time at boot.
I imagine a lot of folks would run into this problem.
