It could be the line drivers not beeing properly enabled. Those are
controlled by "magic" bits in the mac-io ASIC. I don't know the details
about the C600, can you send me a tarball of /proc/device-tree and the
output of /proc/cpuinfo please ?

Also, if you have MacOS (old one, not X), please install MacsBugs and do
a "dm f3000038" in it and tell me the resulting value, when both the
serial port is closed and opened.
