sorry, but I did not find much more info either. I don't know how to change those
IRQs from edge to level. It is from software, on the board itself ? I don't know.
I found interesting pieces of code there :

# grep -r IRQ_SENSE /usr/src/linux-2.4.31/arch/ppc/kernel

They seem to imply that the interrupt mode (level/edge) is read from somewhere at
boot, but I have no idea where. May be they can be configured from the boot loader ?

well, I still do not know how the serial driver manages to find those specific
addresses. You should ask one of the people involved in the previous threads,
he might have more clue.
