Hmm this is not good, but looky what I found:

serial .c
 * 16650/16750 support added for Connect Tech Inc ( www.connecttech.com )
 * DFlex support. For now, only fifos are enabled. Extra features of these
 * chips will be dealt with at a later date.

I checked out the DFlex, and it is more along the lines of an industrial 
board and carries a big price tag.

Now this should allow 16650 support on any board since the DFlex is dumb. 

Question: Where does the licensing for this patch stand? It is based 
on the standard serial.c from the kernal tree, which means this must also be
GPL, correct?
