Plug a null-modem-cable between two serial ports (both config'd as
16450 at highest baud-rate) and see whether what you put out one of
them arrives at the other end. Should generate quite a few
interrupts.
(of course you could short-circuit a pty-pair with a FIFO as well, but
that wouldn't generate hardware interrupts)
