    In addition to my previous answer. I've performed the same tests with
    regular PC serial port. The issues with "Disabling Irq #N" and with I/O
    error on open() exist with this port as well, so they aren't
    mxser-specific. I wasn't able to reproduce oopses, so they do seem to
    be mxser-specific.
