Serial driver version 5.05a (2001-03-20) with MANY_PORTS MULTIPORT SHARE_IRQ
ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A <---On-board
ttyS01 at 0x02f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A <-/
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 00:0c.0
ttyS04 at port 0xb400 (irq = 11) is a 16550A <---Lava DSerial-PCI
ttyS05 at port 0xb000 (irq = 11) is a 16550A <-/
ttyS02 at port 0x03e8 (irq = 5) is a 16550A <--ISA PnP modem

I guess the question is, how do I tell if my machine is using ACPI?
