as far as i can tell, all of the serial drivers install bottom-half
handlers. if they're installed as modules, however, the bottom-half
interrupt handler will get called on a non-existant handler,
resulting in an oops. following is a patch which adds remove_bh()
to the various serial modules and fixes binfmt_em86.c.

is this the correct way of doing things, or is it actually covering
something up?

Seems pretty reasonable, patches applied.
