For me, sio on the motherboard generally has not been an
issue. However, with serial PCI cards, I do see a lot of overflows
and with a bit of cable plugging and unplugging, the box will live
lock and need a reboot.
I noticed on current, if you compile both sio and uart in, sio will
be used for the onboard devices, but uart for puc devices
