Subjectsmc-ircc freeze kernel

I use 2.4.19 kernel with notebook Dell Latitude CPx J650

I modprobe these modules:
irlan 19252 0 (unused)
smc-ircc 6720 1
irport 4856 0 [smc-ircc]
irda 81744 1 [irlan smc-ircc irport]

kernel tells me:
found SMC SuperIO Chip (devid=0x09 rev=08 base=0x03f0): FDC37N958FR
SMC IrDA Controller found
IrCC version 1.1, firport 0x290, sirport 0x3e8 dma=3, irq=0
IrDA: Registered device irda0

ifconfig tells me:
irda0 Link encap:IrLAP HWaddr 00:00:00:00
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:8
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Base address:0x3e8

then when I simply tells:
ifconfig irda0 netmask
my kernel freeze after 3 seconds and only numlock and scrolllock blinks

I dont have any other computer on other side at the moment I write ifconfig.

Thanks for solution
