I recall some discussion earlier about the Boca multiport serial boards
vs the new kernels. Was wondering if there was any resolution that I
missed as I don't remember any and now I have the problem.
The board has been working fine for nearly a year with kernel 1.0.8. I
have obtained 1.2 and it works great except that uugetty can't initialize
the modems any more. Switching back to 1.0.8 cures the problem.
The modems appear to work with Kermit, but I haven't done enough testing
to be 100% sure of this. I have tried upgrading uugetty, no joy. I took
the old getty and it's config file and put them on a machine running 1.2
but with an internal modem. It worked fine.
Debug output from uugetty shows that it's not getting all of the expect
string and eventually times out. That might be because the modems aren't
seeing all of the init string though, as the RD/SD lights act very
strangely. I also tried updating setserial and various permutations in
/etc/defaults/uugetty. Couldn't make it work reliably.

I tried #undef CONFIG_SERIAL_NOPAUSE_IO in serial.c with no luck. Any
