This patch changes kernel_start() to use ia64_platform_is() and not
init the 16550 driver on sn2. In addtion this eliminates the need for
the old hpsim test function.

   I don't know if Xen currently runs under ski (anyone?), but wouldn't
it make sense add the is_platform_hp_ski() code to acpi_get_sysname()
before we break if for sure?  Thanks,

Not sure I follow you here. I believe the ia64_platform_is() does pretty
much the same thing and it's identical to how Linux does it.

I don't think anything special is required ....

I can't test it though, don't have ski handy.
