RFS: setserial -- Controls configuration of serial ports (2nd try)


I would like to adopt existing setserial Debian package.
Could somebody check my new release of the package and sponsor it?

Controls configuration of serial ports.

Set and/or report the configuration information associated with 
a serial port. This information includes what I/O port and which 
IRQ a particular serial port is using.

This version has a completely new approach to configuration, so 
if you have a setup other than the standard ttyS0 and 1, you will 
have to get your hands dirty.

By default, only COM1-4 are configured by the kernel, using 
IRQ 3 and 4. If you have other serial ports (such as an AST Fourport 
card), or if you have mapped the IRQs differently (perhaps COM3 
and 4 to other IRQs to allow concurrent access with COM1 and 2) 
then you must have this package. 

setserial is released under GNU GPL.

New release 2.17-41 can be obtained sfrom following source archive:

deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free


For clarity here is changelog:

I have already retitled bug report #285355 to "ITA:".
