Some checkin since 2.6.11 has caused the serial driver to

Even the shell prompt gets truncated.
There was a problem with 2.6.11-bk1 which should now be resolved.
Is this still true of the latest bk kernel? Also, seeing the kernel

Here is a post I made perhaps relevant to this.
I'll test current bk tonight, but I don't see any recent fix to
drivers/serial/8250.c when browsing linux.bkbits.net/linux-2.6.
