It's the reason why we have UDEV rules now making the two UARTs on the LS connector /dev/tty96B0 and /dev/tty96B1 get rid of the confusion and make it MUCH easier to document things.
Anything in userspace that is 96boards specific is a flawed solution. These problems have nothing to do with 96boards, but are shortcomings in the kernel interfaces. Lets fix those and not be working around them.
Much better said than the rant I had written up but deleted.
I agree that the kernel space is the proper place to fix this but it will likely take years for that to happen, feel free to shock me and have a fix in the next kernel cycle. ;-P
