Subject: BUG: Moxa SmartIO driver does not register i/o regions

Dear Moxa Support,

While adapting the hinv_linux script (http://www.brownnut.com/hinv.htm)
i noticed that the mxser driver will only show up in /proc/interrupts,
but not in /proc/ioports. Since it is highly unlikely that this driver
can access the board without any I/O ports i would consider this a bug.
(Moxa's msdiag tool does report the I/O ports, but i would prefer
that they are properly registered with the kernel...)

A quick check at the moxa driver shows that it also fails to register
the i/o region.

This bug is present both in v2.2 and v2.4.

As a further feature request: it would be nice if the moxa/mxser drivers
would support the /proc/tty-Interface.
