This isn't quite right it seems. Or changes behaviour at least:

We used to cry "modem" if the device _could_ be configured using a COM
address while after this change we'd only do so if it _was_ configured
using one.

My old analog modem for example had 5 dependent sets -- the first with
the regular COM port addresses (0x3f8, 0x2f8, 0x3e8, 0x2e8) and a 5th
one listing a port range of (IIRC, something like that at least) 0x100
to 0xff8.

So say I'd have a PC with the regular two onboard COM ports at COM1 and
COM2 (0x3f8 and 0x2f8) and an additional serial controller providing
COM3 and COM4 (0x3e8 and 0x2e8). My modem would then be configured to
use 0x100 and this code would no longer trigger while it did use to.

Not that I care deeply or anything but whomever wrote this did no doubt
intend it to work this way...

Rene.
