In fact, in Debian it seems that /etc/rc.boot/0setserial is executed
always before /etc/init.d/kerneld. This means that you must never make
serial as a module. In my configuration I must use setserial for the right
interrupt addresses. 

So, setserial should be run after kerneld is running to get this to work. 
With kernel boot diskettes I can not boot my configuration where I have to
use setserial first and build ppp connection after that, unless 0setserial
is between


(I have not tried actually, I found it easier to build a new kernel
with serial built in.)
