 It's actually deep on my to do list.  We also miss zs DMA support on
DECstation (no idea if it's possible on other platforms) for decent
synchronous support.  DEC claims /240 can do up to 208kbps synchronous --
I wonder if we can achieve this one day.  HDLC support might be
problematic, though, as there is a Z8530 erratum that supposedly turns
this unreliable.
