This patch affected a platform that used the same SIO but at the other
input clock rate. If you get the minicom log then the patch is working
since the clockrate affects the UART rate. So, Please send your Acked-by:
I also see the ps/2 keyboard problem with this SIO. It seems to be
something with the linux keyboard init. The keyboard works in filo and
then stops when linux loads. I have been able to get it unstuck by
reading the input buffer by hand. My guess is there is something left in
buffer that linux isn't expecting. Probably a KBC bug. USB keyboards
work fine in linux on my platform so this was a lower priority but I
will look at this more today.
