Sure, but what's the 'interface' reported by the PCI configuration
header?  (should be in your dmesg output, if i'm reading the PCI code

Last i'd heard, most of those pci modem cards did _not_ present
themselves as 16x50 serial ports.  somebody please clue me in if i'm
out of date.

The 'puc' driver does that, but it needs configuration glue (see
puc_data.c) for each different kind of board.  The 'standard' about
what a PCI serial port is doesn't seem to be followed particularly
