That's OK; the interrupts are only allocated when the port is actually
opened. You see, you can't share interrupts at the same time between
devices but 2 devices can use the same interrupt if they are not used
at the same time. That's why IRQs are only allocated when used.

Smells like a modem problem. Maybe the modem is set to non-echo? Try using
the init string from minicom in the ppp script.
