ser_write() is the write 'service function' provided by my device driver
(one of the functions in the DEVDRV struct), sorry I didn't make that clear.
I've had it print out its `bytes' parameter on the console, and it printed
the same number that the test program passes to MiNTLib's write(). Apparently
I've done something wrong somewhere else... :(

Thank you, that will probably make it a lot clearer to me.
