i agree with Eric but i remember that the maximum baud rate is 921,600
bps for all S-FF-BTUART pxa's uarts; maybe you can try also to migrate
from working kernel 2.6.26 to 2.6.27.... and so on, to see when it
first hangs, then seeing what was changed, with relation with
your specific cpu and/or platform, could be the trick.
