serial_cs - PCMCIA serial port driver
is the Card Services driver for all PCMCIA serial devices, including
modem cards. When
is bound to a serial or modem card, it will generally attempt to
allocate the first unused serial device for use by the card. The
device chosen will be recorded in the kernel log file, and will also
be reported to

Selects the PCMCIA debugging level. This parameter is only available
if the module is compiled with debugging enabled. A non-zero value
Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this driver.
A flag specifying if speaker output should be enabled. The default is
1 (true). Set to 0 to disable speaker output.
If set, then the kernel serial driver skips certain sanity checks that
seem to fail for a few PCMCIA modems with odd UART implementations.
The default is 0 (false). Set to 1 to tolerate buggy UART's. This
option is only available for relatively new (2.4 or later?) kernels.
