Subject[Bug] Timedia support in serial driver

I am using a timedia pci 2 ports serial card
Vendor ID :1409
Device ID:7168
SubSystem ID: 4036

This device is not recognized by auto_configure procedure after a quick look
in the serial.c file and few mods for more debug printk, I noticed that the
get_pci_port doesn't see the 2 ports as it doesn't read the base address
correctly. There is a specific piece of code for Timedia cards in the
procedure but it sets a wrong base_idx in my case.

if(dev->vendor == PCI_VENDOR_ID_TIMEDIA ) /* 0x1409 */
switch(idx) {
case 0: base_idx=0;
case 1: base_idx=0; offset=8;
case 2: base_idx=1;
case 3: base_idx=1; offset=8;
case 4: /* BAR 2*/
case 5: /* BAR 3 */
case 6: /* BAR 4*/
case 7: base_idx=idx-2; /* BAR 5*/

The get_pci_port procedure is called by start_pci_pnp_board for each ports of
the board like this:

for (k=0; k < board->num_ports; k++) {
serial_req.irq = get_pci_irq(dev, board, k);
if (get_pci_port(dev, board, &serial_req, k))

So K is starting from 0.

but the serial_pci_guess_board procedure detects the following:
num_port = 2
first_port = 2

So when get_pci_port is called for the first port with k=0, base_idx is set
to 0 and offset is set to 0 so the pci_resource_start returns the base
address for resource 0 and the first port is at resource 2 so get_pci_port
always return 0 for port address (wrong).

I wonder if the PB comes from Timedia specific piece of code (bad base_idx)
or if it comes from the fact that the board->first_port is never set/used

if the board->first_port is set, the start_pci_pnp_board loop should become:

-- for (k=0; k < board->num_ports; k++) {
++ for (k=board->first_port; k < board->first_port+board->num_ports; k++) {
serial_req.irq = get_pci_irq(dev, board, k);
if (get_pci_port(dev, board, &serial_req, k))

starting at board->first_port and not always 0

Tank you
