Indeed, this is the message which I expected, that part is fine as you also found.

No, my Yenta fixup patch is a PCI-bus-configuration-level fixup of the
parent PCI bride thru which the Cardbus controller is connected to the
PCI bus of your CPU.
That level has nothing to do (is far far away) from the kind of UART chip
which is on your cardbus card. What the my Yenta fixup patch does is
only that it reconfigures the parent PCI bridge of the all CardBus
controllers supported by Linux.
Yenta obvoisly stands for match-maker, it's is integrated driver which
suppors all the Linux-supported CardBus controllers, and "matches" the
System with the Cards :-) : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yenta
My Yenta patch just helps the Yenta to fix the system to make the
CPU actually "see" CardBus card so they can get married :)

Good, so it at least finds the IO address port of the UART, it seems.

Yes, that's the fixed PCI bus setup, the first subordinate number had
to be raised from 06 to 0a to match the subordinate number of the second
line shows how linix configured is the CardBus bridge.

Not knowing how CS_EVENT_CARD_INSERTION actually runs the code does
not appear to be a problem, your debug messages reaches the right place:

It always starts on the surface...

This message (I assume, you added it) looks like pointing at a problem spot:
> [4513543.149000] No idea what the port is.
your setserial output was:
/dev/ttyS0, Line 0, UART: unknown, Port: 0x03f8, IRQ: 20
Baud_base: 115200, close_delay: 50, divisor: 0
Flags: spd_normal skip_test
You could try to use setserial to tell the serial port driver which UART
type shall use for this port. From man setserial:
This option is used to set the UART type. The permitted
types are none, 8250, 16450, 16550, 16550A, 16650, 16650V2, 16654,
16750, 16850, 16950, and 16954. Using UART type none will disable the port.
