Problems about porting RTEMS on a BSP close to mbx8xx

I'm porting an old BSP (called spif), to RTEMS 4.7, and encounter
some problems. I read the documentation on rtems.com and I didn't
find any hints. Therefore, I have some questions about bsp porting :
1. On the wiki, I saw that mb8xx bsp does not run out of the box.
But some patches can be applied to correct this. How could I retrieve
these patches ?
2. Our BSP fails when invoking _IO_Initialize_all_drivers, and hangs
when trying to initialize the first driver (major number=0). After some
investigations, it seems to fail in
in the m8xx_uart_smc_initialize() function. We saw the page , but
we didn't find any idea to fix the error. Does anyone have any idea
for this bug?
3. We saw there are many rtems_io_register_name functions, but the
one defined in sapi/src/io.c is not used. We cannot find out why it's
not used. Is this function deprecated ?
Thanks for any answer,
