Such comments are to be placed after --- tearline. Using several such
tearlines makes it harder to apply your patch...
And why do you expect the MIPS maintainer to commit a patch to the
serial driver? Such patches should be addressed to
email@example.com and (most probably) Alan Cox...
Don't use ttyS[0-1] serial device name for board specific PNX8XXX UART
serial. Rather create ttyPNX[0-1]. Also changed minor number to be
different with sa1100 serial driver one.
