 I suggest you to send all the 8250 patches to and most probably the LKML.  I don't think 
the relevant maintainers read this list -- note that they will be the 
general Linux maintainers as the serial subsystem doesn't have a dedicated 
one at the moment.  Please always consult the MAINTAINERS file before 
posting patches (see Documentation/SubmittingPatches too).
