SubjectInconsistent behavior from PCI modem
Summary: serial autoconfig sometimes fails.

I am using a Modem made by a company called Actiontec which they call
the 56K Internal PCI Call Waiting Modem. My serial driver is compiled
as a module, and has been giving me irregular behavior. Inserting the
module results in one of three things:

1. The modem is detected successfully.
2. The modem is detected but with only a 8250 UART.
3. The modem is not detected and an autoconfig failed message is logged:
Jul 29 17:53:12 dragon kernel: Serial driver version 5.01 (2000-05-29)
with MANY_PORTS SHARE_IRQ SERIAL_PCI enabled
Jul 29 17:53:12 dragon kernel: ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
Jul 29 17:53:12 dragon kernel: register_serial(): autoconfig failed

Here is a log of a successful insmod:
Jul 27 20:13:48 dragon kernel: Serial driver version 5.01 (2000-05-29) with
MANY_PORTS SHARE_IRQ SERIAL_PCI enabled
Jul 27 20:13:48 dragon kernel: ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
Jul 27 20:13:48 dragon kernel: ttyS04 at port 0xd400 (irq = 5) is a 1655

I have not found any pattern in the order these occur.

I noticed a remark at some point that some serial cards are not working
perfectly in 2.4.0 yet, so I am hoping that I can provide some information
that would be useful.

I am using kernel version 2.4.0-test5.
