Alan, could this issue lead to dysfunctional serial dcf77 receivers, too?
(and could you point my to the related git changeset?)

I'm using ntpd "127.127.8.0 mode 16" devices since a decade now (RAWDCF
receiver: DTR=low/RTS=high) and after upgrading to openSUSE 11.0, which is
using 2.6.25.5, those get no power anymore :-(.

Or do you have another idea? I currently prepare a test system, and would be
ready for kernel patching tomorrow..

TIA, Pete
