Description

This is a mini-pci card that uses an Oxford Semiconductor UART to add 4 serial ports, it just needs a driver.

From listdev:

vendor 1415: Oxford Semiconductor Ltd device 9510: 0x16PCI954 (quad 16950 UART) function 1 (Disabled)

vendor 1415: Oxford Semicondutor Ltd device 950c: Unknown

Do we really need unsupported hardware in Trac? Haiku doesn't (and probably never will) support thousands of hardware devices. I don't really see the point in cluttering the bug tracker.

This can be moved to low priority and dropped from R1 milestone as it's not a requirement, just a "would be nice to have".

Well I fixed the pc_serial driver to use the tty module, it mostly works now, but it fails on the oxford semi PCI card I have here as well. It seems at least the clock must be set for it to work.

I still have access to this mini-pci card so if/when it gets fixed I can try it out. I have a second mini-pci card that uses the same oxford semi chip to interface to a gps module which just continuously spits out the NMEA gps data.

I have passed this hardware over to korli.

ok, cool. The GPS card also used the same chipset IIRC. And as such just keeps spitting out the NEMA data once per second. Those are mini-pci cards and should also work in some laptops, mostly older ones though as new ones seem to have different interfaces now.
