Well, like I said, the BK trees (both Linus' linux-2.5 and David's

2.6.5-rc1-mm1 worked too.

It looks like there's a bug in the sysrq implementation in the sn_serial
driver. Once the initial console is opened, sysrq no longer works. All I've
determined so far is that both CPUs in my box are in cpu_idle somewhere...
Anyway, I'll keep looking.
