booting slow

I got the keyboard controller problem fixed by enabling Keyboard
separately (Not through the PNP devices list). Since now the PNP devices
don't get enabled at all. For now it's ok because we need only serial
com port and keyboard. But I will love to have the code for SMSC if you
have one available. Thanks.

Now linux kernel boots fine except for one problem. It is extremely slow
after this line
		"Red Hat nash version 3.4.42 starting"
It displays each character slowly including what I typed from the
keyboard(over serial console). It is very slow all the way to linux
command prompt. I think it might have something to do with the routing
table. I haven't changed much of mptable.c which is specific for another
board. I couldn't think of anything else.
