     (The BB2016 is functionally equivalent to two BB1008 boards, and is configured as such.)

DESCRIPTION
     The boca driver provides support for BOCA Research BB1004, BB1008 and BB2016 boards that
     multiplex together up to four, eight or sixteen EIA RS-232C (CCITT V.28) communications
     interfaces.

     Each boca device is the master device for up to eight com devices.  The kernel configuration
     specifies these com devices as slave devices of the boca device, as shown in the synopsis.
     The slave ID given for each com device determines which bit in the interrupt multiplexing
     register is tested to find interrupts for that device.  The port specification for the boca
     device is used to compute the base addresses for the com subdevices and the port for the
     interrupt multiplexing register.

FILES
     /dev/tty??

HISTORY
     The boca driver was written by Charles Hannum, based on the ast driver and source code from
     David Muir Sharnoff.  David wishes to acknowledge the assistance of Jason Venner in deter-
     mining how to use the BOCA boards.
