I've got a pmac running rawhide and have installed the
kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.1240_FC4 package. Trouble is, the 8250 serial
module is built-in, so I can't load the pmac_zilog module to use my
serial ports. From the syslog:
Apr 16 10:32:30 bert kernel: pmac_zilog: 0.6 (Benjamin Herrenschmidt
Apr 16 10:32:30 bert kernel: pmac_zilog: i2c-modem detected, id: 1
Apr 16 10:32:30 bert kernel: pmac_zilog: Error registering serial
device, disabling pmac_zilog.
Apr 16 10:32:30 bert kernel: pmac_zilog: Did another serial driver
already claim the minors?
I can tweek the "kernel-2.6.11-ppc-smp.config" and rebuild the kernel
to fix this, but is there another option? Shouldn't the ppc kernel have
8250 as a module so a "alias char-major-4 pmac_zilog" in my
modprobe.conf would do the right thing?
