Hi all

I am trying to get the second serial port (SMC2) up and running. I have
found that it was removed from arch/ppc/8xx_io/uart.c in the rs_table
struct. I have added this again and now the kernel (2.2.5) seems to find
it on bootup.

CPM UART driver version 0.02
ttyS00 at 0x0280 is a SMC
ttyS01 at 0x0380 is a SMC

What else do I need to do to get it working as when I echo something to
it, I get nothing out of the port.

Thanks in advance
