Thanks for the response....
Mark Diekhans stands accused of saying:
The same results occur with two difference modems, one of which is on
the supported car list (Megahertz XJ2288). I suspect this is either a
configuration mistake or a problem with pcic or sio drivers:
/kernel: PC-Card Cirrus Logic PD6710 (5 mem & 2 I/O windows)
/kernel: pcic: controller irq 10
/kernel: sio0 at 0x3f8-0x3ff irq 4 on isa
/kernel: sio0: type 16550A
/kernel: sio1 not found at 0x2f8
WHen the kernel is booting I get the message:
/kernel: sio0: 64 events for device with no tp
although there is not device attached to sio0.
This sounds like the card doesn't have a 'real' UART in it, but rather
a micro pretending to be one. This is pretty tragic.
Don't know for sure, but these are both two well know cards:
You could look the places in sioprobe() where the EXTRA DELAY comments
are, and try adding 'DELAY(500)' in these places.
Didn't help. I got the passed the probe error on the cardinal but then
go the unfielded interrupt later.
/kernel: sio1: probe test 3 failed
The card failed to generate an interrupt when it should have.
/kernel: sio1: type 16550A
/kernel: Slot 0, unfielded interrupt (3)
... but it's generated it later.
Actually one or the other occurs depending on the reset delay:
probe 3 fails or the fielded interrupt. An then there is the
64 stray strange interrups on sio0..
Thanks for the suggestions,
