I had the IRQ reversion problem when I was had kernel serial
support compiled as a module.  Apparently, when the module gets
unloaded and then reloaded, anything that was in
/etc/rc.boot/0setserial no longer has any effect.  I fixed this
first by putting 'serial' in my /etc/modules, but now I just
compile serial support directly into the kernel.

Don't know about the X problem.
