SubjectRe: [PATCH 02/14] ARM : SAMSUNG : Add RS485 support.
From
I am working on resubmitting this stuff right now.  I have 14 patches
that should be
broken into more like 20 patches. Most of them are ARM S3C and
specifically S3C2416 patches.
I am working on a patch right now to fix a Atomic wait in the DMA
code. That causes
20 milliseconds of no interrupts whenever a sound is played on the samsung S3C
platform.

The code below wasn't supposed to go out and I have patch that removes
that chunk
of code almost ready that just needs testing before I send it.

The chunk of code that says FIXME is an optimization that could be
implemented to
decrease interrupts by using DMA until the last byte is ready to be
sent. I have a new
patch that explains in a comment what the code is for.

I have a patch that I haven't sent yet that fixes the code formating
issues. I need to compile and test it before I send it out.
