I have no idea whether it can be fixed at bios time. I think it worked
after running setserial on the device at linux runtime, but it did not
seem to need that running AMI bios, so it'd be nice to find some sort of
bios workaround here. I asked Winbond for a revision guide, but I doubt
I ever get an answer.
