I'm curious to see if you pin specific USB serial devices to /dev/ttySx ports?

Also have you used more than 128 serial ports?

I've had issues with more than 128 serial devices hanging of a 2.4.x kernel,
but have not tested this with a 2.6.x kernel yet. Especially the cheaper
USB-Serial devices.

To be honest I am yet to do any work with packet, but I'm quite interested
in this space.
