	Just for the archives, I finally fixed my problem... I bought
another Sparc 20 motherboard, moved everything over to it (i.e. same
configuration as before, just different MB). Now the serial port works
just fine from PROM and Linux. Given that a SIMM slot on the other MB was
partially damaged, the board probably had had a rough life. Glad Sparc 20
motherboards are easily had on eBay. :)
