i am now developing a specific serial divice driver in linux as my project 
need some features on the serial driver. But, this is the first time for me to 
develope a device driver in linux.

I find that if i modified the serial.c, i have to re-compile the whole kernel 
and reboot it such that i can use it. i have download the serial-5.05 version 
but i find it cannot be used in RedHat linux 7.3 (i386), could you please 
teach me how to remove the current serial driver and install it back instead 
of rebuild the whole kernel??
