8250 was used as a generic description for the whole Intel UART family
(8250, 16450 and 16550).  If you ignore the 16550's FIFO modes, they are
all more or less software identical and they are all the only UARTs I've
ever come across that use event rather than state driven interrupts.

They were being compared with the UARTs in PDP 7s, 8s, 11s, Motorola chips,
AY- chips etc.  The Linux driver is written for these sorts of UART, not
for the Intel ones.
