    I think your perception is more wrong than you could ever think.
    Montavista would absolutely love all serial ports to be under the
    ttyS* naming, especially on ARM where there is a wide variety of
    different possibilities - ttyAM, ttySA, ttyPXA, ttyAMA, and so
    the list goes on. It apparantly gives their support department
    real headaches.

    There are similar feelings from the community.

    However, despite people pressing for it, there's yet to be a *sane*
    *technical* *solution* to the problem. All I've seen so far is one
    bad hack.
