    Ah. Looks like I owe you an apology.

    I hadn't rebooted after symlinking 8250_cs.o to serial_cs.o. I did a depmod
    -a, and then manually loaded the module - this caused it to not detect my
    serial pcmcia card.

    Rebooting and getting it loaded through cardmgr does work. Odd. Anyway, I'm
    happy :oP
