    Subjectserial port 8250 messed up after coverting from little endian to big endian on kernel 2.6.31
    I am trying to bringup a MIPS32 board using 2.6.31. It is working in
    little endian mode. After changing the board's hardware from little
    endian to bit endian, the serial port print messed up. It prints now
    something like - "àààààààààààààààà" on the screen. When I trace the
    execution, I can see the string the kernel is trying print is correct -
    "Linux version 2.6.31 ..." and etc.

    I guess it means the initialization of the serial port is not properly
    done. But I am not sure where I should check for the problem. The serial
    port device I am using is 8250. Please give me some advise.
