Just a quick note on the problem of the boot process misidentifying the

The 2.6.10 kernel boot process takes over the modem, so that the slamr
driver gets the message that the modem is already in use by another
driver. To stop this from happening, the drivers/serial/8250_pci.c file
must be patched. A patch has been submitted to lkml by Sasha Khapyorsky;
