In serial8250_isa_init_ports(), the port's lock is initialized.  We
should not overwrite it.  Only copy in the fields we need.

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).

Thanks, we are aware of this. All the serial patches had been previously sent as you suggest.

The next revision of this patch set will go to a wider audience, including linux-serial@ as appropriate.
