Serial ports with 32-bit vs. 64-bit processors

I recently compiled kernel version 3.9.2 and got speakup working with my 
audapter serial synth on a debian 32 bit system. I removed the error 
checking about stealing ports and also modified spk_serial_release by 
commenting out synth_release_region. This fixed a problem where the synth 
wouldn't get released and speakup-soft wouldn't work. I don't care enough to 
try this on a 64 bit system.
