I have a Bo-unstable drop from about almost a year ago, and that comment
is not in there... thought I did get everything working just right for
my current setup, which is

ttyS0 - Modem
ttyS1 - PalmPilot (or whatever it's called now).

I just got a BestPower Fortress (needed it), and I would like to hook up
a serial laser printer and, if it works, leave it hooked up.

I'm not necessarily short on interrupts yet, but I figured it would be
interesting of the slower items could just share an interrupt.

Oh well...
