I kept all the defaults at what they are now (usually 9600) to avoid surprises.

Moving the legacy network code broke the patches that added baud rate configuration to the ".yml" files.  I'll resubmit  the patches after I've tested a recent version, but I'll need to pull down the new legacy network branch and build that as well.  Hopefully all goes smoothly and I'll find time today.

FYI, since other people are working in this area: I'll soon submit a PCI multi-port serial driver for an eight port PMC serial port card.  Some of the files will need to be shuffled around.
