The problem with softcar is that if the phone hangs up, cu won't notice
carrier dropping.

I created the file /etc/uucp/port containing the following

	port mymodem
        	type modem
        	device /dev/tty01
        	speed 38400

which tells cu that the device is a modem, and that it has to play
games with CLOCAL in order to open the device.
