Interesting. I started building kernels with the serial driver modularized, and
have been noticing a few bits of weirdness:

- PPP connections initiated by diald (which had been working flawlessly) began to
fail; hanging up seconds into negotiation without any error messages.

- Terminating gpm-1.08 in a console session locks the X-server mouse handler
unrecoverably (this never caused problems previously).

Rebuilding with the serial driver non-modular seemed to mitigate these glitches.
