On the website we have a patch compared to 2.4.22. The patch contains
e.g. a newer serial port driver. In 2.4.25 the official sources will
contain the serial driver patches. Takes a while to get our stuff
into the official trees.
PS. As Johan already mentioned you can never trust that you will get
7 characters at each iteration. User space has no guarantees what
so ever. DS.

I had already tested adding FLUSH_EOP() to force_eop_if_needed() prior
receiveing this message. It definately improved the latency :-)
Is the only drawback performance? Or am I going to have "other"
