I don't understand the what/why question, but that has never stopped
me from providing answers in the past :-)

So, In 2.6, and I think in some of the 2.4 cpm2 stuff, we no longer
automatically map any of the hardware IO resources for common
access like I used to do in the past.  If you want to access the
BCSR, you need to make sure it is ioremap()'ed in your driver before
you make the access.  Was that the question, or was it that
the BCSR should have been set someplace outside of the
driver for the serial port to work?
