I started an MPSC/Uart driver for the 64240/64240A chips.  Didn't get
much of it working when we got fed up with all of the Galileo errata
about which registers could or could not be read at which times and
their confusion as to whether or not they were planning to ever fix the
errata.

We broke down and added a 162550 UART to the board.

The driver code was abandoned in the midst of early debugging stages and
is in a horrific state.  You're welcome to a copy if you really can't
find something better.
