 in fact I did write such a driver for linux68k on my TT, but I'm
still getting broken receive data, apparently when I *send* out data
at the same time using the normal tx_int. I'm wondering if that might
also be a hardware bug, but my TT should have a rather new revision
and all the rumous I've heard about these problems you mention only
cover MSTEs and sound a bit different to me.
