Looking at the code yes this would be per line - but I vaguely remember seeing it
for every char - this was when debugging a systemC model for 8250. Its been a while...
I'd added prints in the model whenever IER would wiggle and it was just being
written with 0's again and again when in the early polling based printing mode.

I'll send a revised version with fixed changelog.

Thx,
