I'm not offended. I would hazard a guess that his/her (sorry!) first
language is Other Than English, and some of the verbiage that native
speakers tend to add just didn't get added.

The reason I didn't answer is that the question was just too general.
"documentation for the serial driver"... If he happens to be reading the
list - I suggest the Documentation directory in the source tree, the
source itself, google, the classic "writing linux device drivers" book
(which I forget the name of right now....), and perhaps more specific
questions to the list :)
