A DS2010 is a 1024*9 FIFO.

I don't see that part number in my indices, but it certainly sounds like
it may be a DEC part number. With the FIFO and the UART, it obviously has
something to do with buffering either input or output through the serial
port. Interesting find! If you look on the board handles, are there any
suffixes on the M8189? (Something like "YA" or "YB"?)
