SubjectCosmetics - improper registration of resources (floppy.c, serial.c)
Hi,

this is only a minor cosmetic issue, but drivers/block/floppy.c and
drivers/char/serial.c do not properly register the used resources (IRQ's).
The serial driver only registers irq 4 (com1) but not irq 3 (com2);
the floppy driver should register irq 6. Maybe this can be fixed in 2.0.x.

Example:

/proc/interrupts:
0: 478505 timer
1: 4669 keyboard
2: 0 cascade
4: 30015 + serial
11: 11096 aha1740
13: 0 math error
15: 0 + ide1

/proc/stat:
[...]
intr 863945 480156 4705 0 337352 30625 0 2 0 0 0 0 11105 0 0 0 0
[...] ^^^^^^ ^- Floppy driver (irq 6)
^^^^^^- this is irq 3 (Modem @ com2)

/proc/ioports is o.k., everything is properly registered:
[...]
02f8-02ff : serial(auto)
[...]
03f0-03f5 : floppy
03f7-03f7 : floppy DIR
03f8-03ff : serial(auto)
[...]

My .config (excerpt):
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_FD=y
CONFIG_SERIAL=y

Boot messages:
[...]
