I had a similar problem, and I found this bit in section 4.4 of the

   If you configure your kernel to load the basic Linux serial port
   driver as a module, you must edit /etc/pcmcia/config to indicate that
   this module must be loaded. Edit the serial device entry to read:

	   class "serial" module "misc/serial", "serial_cs
Making those changes did the trick.
