Well, I'll look at this when I get off the plane or so ...
I finally tracked the problem with <CTRL>-s locking up the machine down.
It's a missing restore_flags() in the newport driver that makes the
keyboard driver bottom half go bobo. Also we were missing irq_enter/
irq_leave in the Indy interrupt handler. The patch, well, it's in my
suit case. Have fun with your crashing boxes :-)
