So here the bios claims that the serial port can use any of 3 to 12 irqs.

Why is this kernel compiled with irq sharing disabled?

The isa probe driver find the serial port.

But then decides that the port is already in use (the existing serial driver).

Please try and boot 3.7.0 with "8250.share_irqs=1", maybe it will pick
irq 3 and it will be happy again, but that is just a guess.

I think I have not fully understood what the failure is. Does the serial
port not work or does the boot hang? What are the symptoms?

We might be able to fix the problem with a pnp quirk but 3.7 is has not had
any releases for a long time. We will need a reproduction on a concurrent
kernel so a patch can be written for that.
