Hi Dominik,

Sorry for the delay. I became father and had to adjust priorities.

Is it called 'serial_attach' in 2.6.14-rc4-mm1? That is the only
matching function I could find.

I'll try to insert some printk()s but I don't exactly eat source code
for breakfast :-)

FWIW, 2.6.14-rc4-mm1 and pcmciautils-010 don't make a difference yet.

I'll follow up.
