I guess I didn't write this enough times in the notes....Do not, do not,
configure _any_ of the serial I/O options, and many other things, like
CONFIG_VT.  When you select 8xx for the processor type, the proper
serial I/O selections are automatically made to use the internal
CPM serial ports.

Somewhere, someplace, someday, when I get around to making the CVS
updates.  It was a configuration option a very long time ago, it
never worked, I couldn't test it, so I removed it.  I will put it
back in based upon tested patches from others......

Get Magnus Damm to send you his (F)ADS patches (which he was going
to send to me :-)......

Get on the linuxppc-embedded mailing list.  Search the old mail
archives for FADS messages.
