I've created this patch that adds a global macro/variable 
serial_port_needs_delay. I've also deleted UPQ_DELAY_BEFORE_READ and test 
serial_port_needs_delay directly in io_serial_in, so that the compiler 
will optimize it out on non-alpha architectures.

It's hard to detect Alpha without using '#ifdef CONFIG_ALPHA' :) The ISA 
serial port hardware is simple, so I think that you can't distinguish it 
just based on its behavior.

alpha: add a delay before serial port read

The patch 92d7223a74235054f2aa7227d207d9c57f84dca0 ("alpha: io: reorder
barriers to guarantee writeX() and iowriteX() ordering #2") broke boot on
the Alpha Avanti platform.

The patch changes timing between accesses to the ISA bus, in particular,
it reduces the time between "write" access and a subsequent "read" access.

This causes lock-up when accessing the real time clock and serial ports.

This patch fixes the serial ports by adding a small delay before the "inb"
instruction.

That's not good, what about systems with hundreds of serial ports?

The ISA serial port hardware does not have a unique vendor/product id
somewhere?  Some other sort of definition that we can use to determine
exactly what type of system we are running on?

Again, this should be a per-port thing, not all ports in the system are
this broken, right?
