Attention John Heim, About your Custome Kernel?

This thread got my attention.
I've been sadly speechless since moving to this new system that doesn't have
on-board serial ports, and my serial dectalk express is sitting here doing
nothing. I plan to set up software speech, but I really do miss boot-time
If I get a USB to serial converter and build support into the kernel for it,
will I be able to use my serial Dectalk Express again once USB device
detection has completed?
If so, will I need to apply John's hack/bug fix/work-around/whatever you
want to call it?

Well, it would probably be easier just to build a patched kernel. It's
really not that difficult to patch the kernel. At one time I put out just
the patch. I can probably do that yet today. Of course, you don't really
even need my patch. You can just comment out that one line of code. Right
now, I can't give the exact location of the line in question but it would
be in the archives.
I'll try to put up a document on www.iavit.org (The International
Association of Visually Impaired Technologists) with details on patching the
code and a link to my custom 64-bit kernel.
