I should also mention that efi332 console code uses CTS and RTS (trough
PORTF I/O of the 68332 wich just as TX/RX), but these signals are not
available on the serial port of an efi332 board if I judge by the
documentation available on the efi project web site. But I understand
that efi332 used different hardware along the time. Any efi332 board
user on the list? What's the status?
