Subjectserial problems
Switching from kernel 2.2.18 to 2.4.0 I found that my serial ports work no
more. And while using serial mouse it is quite ugly situation.

Some infos:
- QDI PII440BX B-1 motherboard
- 2 COMs + 1 internal modem -> requested state:
/dev/ttyS0 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
/dev/ttyS1 at 0x02f8 (irq = 11) is a 16550A
/dev/ttyS2 at 0x03e8 (irq = 10) is a 16550A

(irq 3 uses network card :-)

I set above settings in BIOS (because I wasn't able to setup all these
things using Linux's PnP capabilities).

Both kernels make the detection same (wrong :-) way. Let's see:

2.2.18:
Serial driver version 4.27 with HUB-6 MANY_PORTS MULTIPORT SHARE_IRQ enabled
ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
ttyS01 at 0x02f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
ttyS02 at 0x03e8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A

2.4.0:
Serial driver version 5.02 (2000-08-09) with HUB-6 MANY_PORTS MULTIPORT SHARE_IRQ DETECT_IRQ SERIAL_PCI ISAPNP enabled
ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
ttyS01 at 0x02f8 (irq = 11) is a 16550A
ttyS02 at 0x03e8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A

And after that, they are corrected by setserial. But only 2.2.18 works.
JFYI: I really try various options for configuring the serial module.

Can someone help me solving this problem?
Was there some bugfixing so 2.4.2 kernel should work better?
Are you missing some other info?

I attached a bit of syslog when the serial module was compiled with all debug
messages. I just load it, started gpm and tried to move mouse around....
