Sorry! No not at all!

The serial port on alix1c is on the Winbond superio chip. The alix2
and 3 boards do not have this superio chip and their serial port is
connected directly to the 5536 - and this is probably the reason that
serial doesn't work anymore.

The 5536 port shall of course work too, but the Winbond chip is much
more common.

I only meant that I haven't spent any time on my 3c3 board since I
fried it.

Sorry for the confusion!
