new uart on MPC8xx

I was checking the new uart (got the kernel from )

I tried to use some pins on port b for handshake and it refuses to compile:
The problem is in uart.c around line 80:

#define PORT_DTR1_PAR immap->im_ioport.iop_pbpar

but 8xx_immap.h reads:

typedef struct comm_proc {
        uint   cp_pbdir;

so port b is a little different from all the other ports ;-)

Has anyone got a patch to correct this ?


ps: is this list the right place to report such troubles ?
