I expected that as well, but they really are set up at ttyS01 vs ttyS1.  I saw some mention whilst struggling along about a change in the kernel so as to not end up with hex letters when over 9.  IIRC

Thanks to another hint about killing the baud_base, I have some ibuttons happily being read on ttyS01 now.  Will work on ttyS02 later when I need it.  I have ports 2-4 sharing IRQ15 and it doesn't quite seem happy yet.
