+Digi AccelePort Driver
+  This driver supports the Digi AccelePort USB 4 device, a 4 port
+  USB serial converter.  The driver does NOT yet support the Digi
+  AccelePort USB 2 or 8.
+  The driver supports open, close, read, write, termios settings (baud
+  rate, word size, parity, stop bits, hardware/software flow control,
+  CREAD), DTR/RTS, and TIOCMGET/SET/BIS/BIC ioctls.  It has not been
+  thoroughly tested, but it seems to be working reasonable well.  There
+  is more work to do, including flow control, ioctls, and support for
+  the Digi AccelePort USB 2 and 8.
+  Please contact Peter Berger ( or Al Borchers
+  ( for questions or problems with this
+  driver.
