Alexandre, you are right that that code should be revised and duplications
must be remove. But since I'm not an expert in the win32 communications code,
I can't do it without risk to break a working code. This patch was mostly
inspired by the fact, that while USER exports 16-bit comm stuff, that stuff
is not in the USER code. Instead of doing an ugly thing exporting 16-bit comm
functions from KERNEL I decided to move the code around. Please consider the
applying of the patch as it is now. Code duplication can be removed later.
