I think you need to submit your patch to Andrew Morton since it
requires a patch from his tree.
OK, will do.
In fact, since the serial drivers are not maintained anymore, this seems
the only option.

It's for lost interrupts, IIUC. They use anothe timeout handler for the
This issue (2) is a completely new type of interrupt generated but the

Yeah, IRQ0 is treated as no IRQ by 8250, and in this case it falls
back to using serial8250_timeout() to handle "interrupts".
Good to know. It won't be affecting us then.
