     (The BB2016 is functionally equivalent to two BB1008 boards, and is con-
     figured 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 subde-
     vices and the port for the interrupt multiplexing register.

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 determining how to use the BOCA boards.
