Only with some awful hacks to disable the probing of I/O ports and to
make it start at ttyS2 instead of ttyS0.  This hack is in my rsync
trees and in the precompiled kernels I've done.  (I could post a patch
if necessary.)

It's not a good long-term solution but I needed something so I could
use the PC-card modem on my 3400. :-)
